the last duck harvesting day, 2 weeks ago
I was gearing up with coffee before milking time, emotionally preparing for today. It will be the third harvesting day of 2010, and want to say a thank you to the ducks and turkeys we’ll be processing today. They are amazing, lovely creatures who I have been so lucky to care for. Thank you, my dearests.
- the fruit of my farm, fresh chilled duckling
more harvest day mayhem- thanks Maren, Kitty, Sloan, Craig, Paul, and most of all Andrew, for all your help!
Andrew and I butchered a turkey to make into sausage, but that night we roasted the wings in the oven with a ginger hickory sauce.....yummmmm! THAT is a wing!
Looking for fresh duck meat, which is nearly impossible to find?????
I will be hand harvesting heritage ducks this Sunday, technically “duckling” since they are not adults. I’ll be delivering them to Minneapolis on Tuesday July 27th, please let me know if you’re interested. I charge a flat fee of $20 for a humanely raised and lovingly cared for whole duck, which are approximately 3.5 – 4 lbs. goatmilkwi (at) yahoo.com
