August 2019 – Meet some of our Indian runner ducks!

They spend their days exploring, eating, drinking, swimming, sunbathing, chatting noisily… Read more »

May 2019 – They’re growing up – and fast!

Here are some of our school/nursery/care home ducklings back at the farm. The ducklings in this pen are now a few weeks old and have done a LOT of growing since they first hatched.

May 2019 – Ducks, ducks everywhere!

See how they’ve grown! Here are some of the ducks hatched in schools, nurseries and care homes earlier this year.
