Norton Farms Muscovy Ducks are free range, and pasture raised without the use of steroids, antibiotics or growth hormones. We  grow our ducks for 70-90 days compared to 42-45 days for commercial Pekin ducks. 


This allows the bird to fully mature.  The feed we give is carefully selected grain for a balanced diet and of course the ducks eat as much grass, bugs, flies, worms, and frogs as they like.


A Little About Muscovy Ducks

Originating in the warm climates of South America, the Muscovy duck is a breed apart from the rest. It is by far the leanest domesticated duck breed. Long the favorite of Europeans, Muscovy is now the duck of choice here in Canada.  


The Muscovy Duck has been domesticated for centuries, and is widely traded as "Barbary duck". Muscovy breeds are popular because they have stronger-tasting meat – sometimes compared to roasted beef.


Benefits of Eating Muscovy Duck

Muscovy duck has a unique taste: it is lean, meaty, tender and flavorful. Muscovy Ducks range from 4-7 lb, giving them the highest yield of any duck available. And 50% more breast meat than other ducks. Muscovy breast meat is 99% lean and the skin of our duck has 50% less fat than the Moulard or Pekin varieties!


Did you know that Muscovy ducks have less fat and less calories per pound than turkey?

The most common thing we hear from our customers when we ask if they have tried Muscovy duck is “ I don’t like duck it is too greasy.” After we get them to try our free range Muscovy duck, everyone says they love it and that it did not taste like duck they've had before.
