Origins

This Free-Range Whole Duck comes from a carefully chosen poultry supplier, Creedy Carver, based at Merrifield Farm in Crediton, Devon. Peter and Sue Coleman pride themselves on producing top-quality poultry (Chickens as well as Ducks) whilst maintaining a very sympathetic approach to bird welfare. Their Free-Range Ducks start out in temperature-controlled brooder units; at 28 days old the Ducklings are moved to free-range arks, where the small flocks enjoy daytime access to grassy paddocks, as well as a little pond (actually a repurposed child’s paddling pool). The Ducklings are fed a low density, GM-free diet of corn, vegetable protein, minerals and vitamins, with no antibiotics or growth promoters. This allows the Ducklings to mature at their own, natural pace, and leads to superb quality meat with an outstanding flavour.

Butcher's Tips

This Duck Cushion is carefully hand-tied to give it a distinctive shape - do remember to remove the string before carving.

How to Cook

Preheat the oven to 190°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Place the Cushion in a roasting tin and cook for 45 minutes to an hour, basting it once or twice with its juices if wished. The meat is cooked when, if it is pierced with a clean skewer, the juices run clear. When it is cooked, remove the Duck Cushion from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes in a warm place before serving.
