DUCKSTOCK is coming up on June 12th – it’s a great time to indulge in some Ontario duck!
Ontario is the land of a thousand lakes — and even more ducks. If you are brave and adventurous, you could go for a hunt, but in this day and age, there’s no need. It’s way easier to find Ontario duck than you might think. King Cole Ducks duck is available at most major grocery stores, good butcher shops and at farmers market across the province.
In Ontario, the breeds of duck you’ll find on store shelves is most likely Pekin duck or the Muscovy duck. The Pekins have tender mild-flavoured meat, so if you prefer a stronger taste and less fat, the Muscovy duck is the one for you!
At King Cole Ducks, they’re redefining our current farm-to fork ideas. Yes, their ducks are locally-raised on all-vegetable grain, they run around in the grass all summer and come from just north of Toronto — but did you know that they’re a vertically integrated farm complex? That means they do all the research, development, breeding, hatching, growing, product development and processing on site. No middle men, all Ontario duck.
Duck is an excellent choice. It tastes amazing, and it’s super easy to cook.
