Dear Heritage Foods USA Supporter,

We are so excited to bring you fresh ducks and geese from White Oak Pastures Farm in Bluffton, Georgia! The Harris's are fifth generation farmers, and they are continuing in the tradition of their family's farming lineage. The farm was founded in 1866 by Captain James Edward Harris and the family has been farming on the same land ever since.

Everything that the Harris's do boasts sustainability and a commitment to traditional agriculture. Their farm and abattoirs carry three highly regarded certifications: USDA Certified Organic, Animal Welfare Approved and Certified Humane. They raise a diverse collection of livestock, rotating cattle, sheep and poultry, adhering to the Serengeti Rotational Grazing Model. Because of this they don't have to use chemical fertilizers and pesticides on their land. They also raise their animals without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones. White Oak Pastures is unique as it is the only farm in the United States that has on-site processing facilities for both beef and poultry – they are zero waste facilities!

About the Breeds:
The ducks and geese are raised outdoors, on pasture with no antibiotics or growth hormones. White Oak Pastures poultry is absolutely delicious and at the top of its class. Their poultry breeds are recognized by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy as rare.

Our ducks
The Khaki Campbell is an exceptional breed – developed by Adele Campbell in Gloucestershire, England at the turn of the 20th century. Originally bred for their delicious eggs, the Khaki Campbells are excellent foragers.

The Blue Swedish is the perfect meat bird – they're heavier than most duck breeds with a full deep breast, a broad body and stout thighs. The Blue Sweedish is an old northern European breed with a friendly temperament.

The Buff is a dual-purpose breed – the breed is slow to mature, and used both for eggs and meat. They get their name from their rich, red-buff coloring. The Buffs were developed in Kent, England.

The Pekin is a classic duck– made famous by the popular Chinese dish Peking Duck. Natives to China, these ducks were bred with the familiar Muscovy to create the perfect hybrid for the celebrated dish. They're characterized by their ivory-white coats.

Our geese
The African goose – another native of China, this breed is a descendant of the wild swan. The African goose is excellent for roasting with a nice proportion of lean meat.

Cooking Instructions For Ducks And Geese
Our national cohort of chefs recommend a finished temperature of ten degrees less that stated by the USDA (165 degrees). Do not overcook the bird. The bird is ready when you cut into the meat and the juice runs clear. Do not worry about making small incisions into the breast or leg to determine the doneness of the bird.

Butchering goose or duck can be done in the traditional carving method or using a cleaver, mezzaluna or a large heavy knife. Cut through the wing joints to separate wings; cut through the leg joints to separate legs; use a regular knife to cut medallions out of the breast and use your fingers to pull-off any remaining meat around the carcass.

We recommend rubbing your bird with little more than salt, pepper and olive oil and cooking at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Using this simple method you will have time to dedicate to more creative side dishes! Because a lot of fat falls off the duck and goose, be sure to drain the pan frequently or cook the duck or goose slightly elevated. Open the oven occasionally to check on the cooking of the bird. Adding potatoes and vegetables to the pan to cook in that sumptuous and silky fat is the lagniappe that makes this a truly outstanding meal.

Sincerely,

The Heritage Team
