We are a waterfowl farm in Millbrook, Ontario Canada.
Our waterfowl stock has been primarily obtained and hand picked by Dave Holderread in Corvallis, Oregon USA. We imported the last of his Elite quality Indian Runners and we are preserving Dave's 50+ years of work into the breed.
We breed Elite Indian Runner, Welsh Harlequin, Saxony , Silver Appleyard and Ancona ducks. We also breed Holderread’ Giant Dewlap Toulouse and American Blue/Lavender geese.
We operate differently from most other waterfowl farms as our aim is preservation. Our animals live as naturally as possible with access to pasture, forests and grazing. We supplement their free range diets with microgreens, sprouts and fermented feed. We enjoy them every single day!
2014 This is where our journey started. Colin travelled over 3000km's in search of the highest quality Indian Runner ducks available in North America. Dave Holderread was kind enough to give us first chance at purchasing the remaining stock of their Black and Blue Indian Runner ducks.
2015 Colin imported three times from the Holderreads' and we were given first choice in 2015 to take over the remainder of his Elite Indian Runner ducks for preservation purposes.
2016 we focused on becoming a primary breeding flock and preserving Dave Holderread’s Silver Appleyard ducks. We further strengthened our primary breeding flocks.
2017 leads us in a slightly new direction as we grow our breeds and are importing one last duck breed for preservation purposes. We continue to focus on strengthening our primary breeding flocks.
2018 we will begin export shipping to the USA. We are currently accepting pre-orders and we plan to be sold out by the summer.
We are a proud member and representative of the Indian Runner Duck Association of the UK (IRDA UK).
We also have horses..
