About our ducks

We raise ducks for eggs, they are called Khaki Campbell.

Mrs. Adele Campbell of Gloucestershire, England, developed this breed late in the 1800s. She crossed her Fawn and White Indian Runner, an exceptional layer, with a Rouen to create offspring that would lay well and have bigger bodies. From this humble foundation, one of the world's most prolific egg laying breed, the Campbell, was developed.

Campbells are prolific layers and we do sell certified organic duck eggs. We always have them at the Seaside Farmers Market.

Our ducks are fed a USDA certified organic feed without soy.  Their eggs are incredibly nutricious, 2 to 3 times more than a chicken egg. They are superb in flavor and in texture.
