For any meat or poultry to be labelled organic it must have been reared in accordance with set and governed organic welfare standards. High standards of animal husbandry and welfare are critical to us at Coombe Farm Organic. We believe that animals should live their lives in an environment that offers them the opportunity to follow their natural instincts. For our ducks, that means growing in a free-range, sustainable system with access to water for swimming and grass for grazing. An active lifestyle and natural diet ensure our ducks are healthy, with strong immune systems. And that translates directly into high-welfare meat that tastes delicious.
