And fantastic ducks they are indeed. Easy work with good ingredients!
We have expanded into slow reared (70-80 days) chickens & cockerels, reared outdoors in the traditional way.
All our Irish Outdoor reared poultry is reared on our farm in Carrigcleena, just outside the village of Bweeng, Co Cork. We are a small family business with a passion for the poultry we rear and the finished product that we produce.
Our baby ducks, geese and chickens arrive on our farm within days of hatching, their enclosures are warmed to give them maximum protection from the elements, they are given a constant supply of clean water and feed for the first two weeks to give them the perfect start in life.
When old enough they are given full access to fields, to enjoy their natural surroundings during all daylight hours, coming into buildings at night and are bedded on fresh clean straw every day, coming in at night is essential to prevent them becoming a midnight feast for various night time prowlers!
We nurture them from babies until ready to slaughter feeding them on a diet containing 80% cereals, we do not give them antibiotics or growth promoters. as we have full control from baby to adult we can ensure the highest possible quality.
During the day if you drive passed our farm, you wil be able to see our ducks, chickens and geese wandering around the fields in nearly all weathers, we tend to find they like basking in the sunshine and ducks and geese obviously love the rain, (chickens hate it!) we do find however that they are a little less likely to stay outside in very high wind! Who can blame them?
When reared to maturity, which gives a fuller flavour to the meat they produce they are slaughtered on farm in our own purpose built slaughterhouse which allows them to be walked calmly from their enclosures to the holding pen ensuring as little stress as possible. Slaughtering on farm means that we are able to fully maintain control of the entire process to ensure that from baby to oven ready we can ensure the finest product.
All our poultry is packed on site after being left to hang in a cold room overnight to ensure a nice dry skin, from here they are then transported in a refrigerated van to our customers around Co Cork, Co Kerry, Co Limerick and Co Waterford, this is the first time they have left our farm since arriving newly hatched, meaning that we are keeping our road miles as low as possible.
We believe that our poultry is happy poultry and that happy poultry make tasty poultry.
