Heritage Breed Ducks

Our flock is a collection of different Heritage breeds- Runner, Saxony, Welsh Harlequin, Magpie, Khaki Campbell, and Silver Appleyard. We even have a few geese to sound the alarm if any predators pass through. We raise ducks for their egg laying as well as foraging capabilities. Ducks are excellent insect eaters and so allowing them access to our pastures helps us to keep down flies, ticks, as well as parasites that may negatively affect our other animals. In return they provide us with some of the most nutritious eggs on the grocery store shelf.  Duck eggs are higher in vitamins, minerals, protein, as well as fat compared to chicken eggs.
