Skeaghanore Farm Fresh Ducks are produced by Eugene and Helena Hickey on their family farm in West Cork. Farming geese and ducks was once a small enterprise on their dairy farm, but following the increase in demand for their duck products they decided to concentrate on producing ducks and geese. The family is also excited about its latest product, confit duck legs.
The Highest Quality
Skeaghanore ducks are hand-reared, bedded on straw, and fed on a 100 per cent natural cereal-based diet. The end product is exceptionally succulent and tasty. What’s more, chefs also point out another secret ingredient: the salt-laden air from nearby Roaring Water Bay, which lends an intriguing salty taste to Skeaghanore ducks. It is no wonder that Skeaghanore ducks are a regular feature on the menus of top chefs in the Southwest of Ireland for many years.
Succulent Unique Taste
The smoked duck is first marinated and brined for 24 hours. Then slowly smoked in hot oak for over 4 hours, which gives it a succulent unique taste. Our Smoked Breast of Duck and Confit Duck Leg are now our most popular product with feedback being very positive.
Please note: All Skeaghanore Duck products have a 2-day lead time.
