About this cut
These wings are a rich and flavorful alternative to chicken wings. We've noticed them popping up on menus across the country by chefs who enjoy a challenge. As with all duck, the meat benefits from a low temperature cooking, with some searing at the end to crisp up the skin. You could also use these duck wings to make flavorful stock, chulent or stew.
Our pastured ducks are carefully raised by our network of poultry farmers in the mid-Atlantic, where they graze freely and have ample access to fresh water for bathing. Their diet includes GMO-free grain, plus grasses and legumes foraged from the pasture. They are never fed any hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products.
Basic Cooking Technique
Slow roast at 225F, braise, steam or smoke to tenderize, then sear or grill to crisp.

Cooked a pack today by braising first then deep drying. I didn’t noticed until after I braised them that they had lots of feathers. I had to remove the skin which ruined my crispy skin experience. They were otherwise good.
From Grow & Behold: Thanks so much for taking the time to review the duck. As noted on the product page at this time, this batch of duck was particularly hearty and the feathers were a little more persistent! We're sorry you didn't get to enjoy the skin!
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
|1lb - 2.19lb||0.1lb|
|2.2lb - 2.74lb||0.30lb|
|2.75lb - 10.24lb||0.25lb|
