Organic Duck

Organic Duck

Reared locally in Devon's Blackdown Hills, all of our ducks are the Pekin breed. These traditional birds produce meat that's unforgettable from the first taste - juicy, rich and sublimely earthy, with just the right amount of sweet fat. Put a spin on Sunday lunch by serving a whole roast duck accompanied by a fruity berry sauce, or use our flavoursome and juicy organic duck breasts to rustle up a romantic supper that tastes decadent but is done in no time. By working with a poultry specialist who has decades of experience running a Soil Association-certified farm, we know that our duck has been reared in a natural, high-welfare system and provides a quality of meat that's second to none.

  • Duck meat is tender, juicy, a little meaty, with a high level of fat. Duck meat has a meatier taste than chicken with a unique sweet and savoury flavour also. In comparison to turkey and chicken, duck does not have a lot of meat, yet retains a high level of nutrient. With its thick skin, this meat becomes quite crispy when cooked. It is the perfect bird meat for roasting because of its texture.

  • Both duck and chicken are healthy choices of poultry. Duck is a lean meat, comparable in fat and calories to a skinless chicken or turkey breast. It is an excellent source of selenium and zinc, both of which encourage good cellular metabolism. Since duck is a red meat, it contains higher amounts of iron than other poultry. The fat content of duck meat is mostly healthy unsaturated fat and is an excellent source of protein.

  • For any meat or poultry to be labelled organic is must have been reared in accordance with set and governed organic welfare standards. High standards of animal husbandry and welfare are critical to us at The Organic Butchery. We believe that animals should live their lives in an environment that offers them the opportunity to follow their natural instincts. For ducks, that means growing in a free-range, sustainable system with access to water for swimming and grass for grazing. An active lifestyle and natural diet ensure the ducks we source are healthy, with strong immune systems. And that translates directly into high-welfare meat that tastes delicious.

  • Duck is a healthy type of meat filled with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Its’ skin is very fatty but can removed, leaving a cut of meat that is comparable in fat and calories to a skinless chicken or turkey breast.
