We’re excited to announce that we’ll be on Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl’s WCCO Radio Show “Off the Menu” tomorrow, June 6, at 11am! Tune in and hear about everything going out here on our farm, and we’ll also talk about how Duck Eggs are the Ultimate Egg! We’ll post a link to it afterwards in case you miss it.

We’ve been raising heritage ducks and providing their amazing eggs to the Twin City’s Natural Food Co-ops and our CSA members for 5 wonderful years. Our lady ducks are precious to us, and their exuberant personalities reward us every day. When they come running out to their fresh pasture in the morning, watching them happily devouring the grass and weeds can’t help but bring a giant smile to our face. Happy ducks lay the best eggs! Happy ducks equal happy farmers!

andrew can make the PERFFECT overeasy egg, trapped in a pillow, somehow. He has magic skills.

Duck Eggs make the perfect overeasy egg,                                         with their extra thick and luscious yolk.

and a little feta on top, sit back and watch the show as the custardy yolk oozes out.

Duck Egg Quiches for a party!

Duck eggs are a SUPERFOOD! They contain twice as much protein, potassium and Vitamin A, three times as much iron, and five times as much Vitamin B12, compared to chicken eggs. Duck eggs are also higher in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, thiamin, niacin, Vitamin B6, folate, and retinol. They contain twice the amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids as chicken eggs do. Monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol,) while increasing HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol).
