Our Animals

We work hard at Gray Duck Farms to raise our animals humanly and allowing them to have a high quality of life. All of our animals are treated with love, dignity and respect.

Beef

We raise Scottish Highlander and Highlander cross cows. They are a very hardy animal and love lush pastures. They produce a marbled lean meat. The cows are NOT fed grain or corn. They are only on pasture and supplemented hay in the winter. We use high quality minerals and supplements as well.

Pork

We raise Idaho Pasture Pigs and Meishan. Both are lard breeds which means they will have very nice marbling. The meat will NOT be “The other white meat”. Instead it will be a nice red color and look more like a beef steak. The flavor is amazing! Our pigs are encouraged to forage and are fed very little grain and supplemented with high quality minerals. They are also fed produce, fermented grains, milk, and kefir when available.

Chickens

We raise Cornish-cross chickens during the summer months. The chickens are free ranged in the pasture. They are fed a well balanced feed that is transitional organic, free of soy and corn. They also get produce when available and supplements such as garlic, apple cider vinegar, and oregano.

Ducks

We raise Muscovy ducks for meat. The meat is dark, lean and full of flavor. The Muscovies are great foragers and free range around the farm and they do get grain supplementation and minerals.

Duck Eggs

We raise mostly Khaki Campbell and White Layers for egg production. Our ducks are fed high quality feed and supplements. The ducks free range around the farm. Duck eggs are more nutrient dense than chicken eggs and they taste amazing. Many people that have egg allergies can tolerate duck eggs. Duck eggs can be used in the same capacities as a chicken egg but they are superb in baking.
