Proudly sourced from Tathra Place Free Range a Regenerative farm in Wombeyan Caves NSW. Grown ethically in chemical and pharmaceutical free ecosystems where the animals are the tools in the regenerative system responsible for re-building top soils, increasing organic matter and sequestering carbon, creating ecosystems with multiple species of animals, plants and insects choreographed with aggressive rotation and rest
Chemical-free, hormone-free, antibiotic-free pastured Peking Duck: Duck is prized for its thin, crisp skin and traditionally roasted in the oven. The completely natural way the ducks are raised results in an intense flavour complexity in the meat, a deeper and richer texture and a thicker layer of fat coverage.
Maremma Free Range Ducks: Maremma Free Range Duck is a true free range, pasture raised bird, free to roam in 10 acre silvo-pastured cells as part of a highly rotational land healing regenerative agricultural system. All of our animals have access to water from the Wombeyan Caves aquifer which is very pure drinking water. Our ducks also have access to something we have developed called a dunk tank which gives them access to clean water for bathing and good beak health which is imperative for the health of water fowl. The birds eat a non GMO grain supplement that completes a diet of grasses, bugs, worms and anything else they can find. Predator protection is achieved by Maremma dogs which patrol the ten acre cells and guarantee zero fatality. We limit stock density to 500 birds per cell and all birds have plenty of access to shade and wind protection. Because we allow these animals to live freely in the wild without any sheds or confinement the meat is much more tender and the amount of fat is increased and the flavour unbeatable.
The future: We hope to encourage other producers to incorporate some of our farming methodology. We believe we have now proved that some of the conventional farming methods like a reliance on pharmaceuticals and chemical fertilisation are out-dated and with the right management can be avoided all together. The more people sourcing and consuming our nutrient dense natural produce, the less people consume chemical base artificial foods that are detrimental to their health. Without opening up a climate change debate its a known fact that perennial based rotational farming is the most efficient way of sequestering carbon and the more successful this company is, the more land we can nurture and heal.
