Farm Fresh – The Way It Used to Be
As part of our effort to provide discerning home cooks with the finest quality duck products, we raise a limited number of free-range, antibiotic and preservative free ducks for meat.
Duck meat is available by reservation. Please call us well in advance. We can give you a fairly accurate idea of the dressed weights of the ducks we will be offering.
We’re sorry, but we cannot deliver duck meat to your door as we are under “Family Farm Rules” that follow the USDA guidelines for Producer/Growers with a 1,000 duck annual processing limit.
The USDA does not permit Producer/Growers in the Family Farm category to sell duck meat to restaurants, gourmet food stores or other commercial ventures.
There is no difference in the way we raise ducks that are used for meat purposes versus our laying hens. On Messuri Family Farm, every creature is respected and the meat is always processed with the greatest of care.
Delicious, Fresh and Free Range
Discerning home cooks readily appreciate the unmistakable difference in taste and texture between Messuri Family Farm Duck Meat and ducks that lived their lives in a production line type of existence.
As with our laying hens, ducks used for meat purposes are fed the very finest, locally sourced feed, have constant access to clean water and weather permitting, live under free-range conditions.
Farm Fresh Turkey
We are pleased to offer a limited number of farm fresh, free-range turkeys. The quality of our turkey meat is excellent as the turkeys are fed locally sourced foods and they live their lives pecking away at the dirt and grass on our farm.
Turkey meat is available only through reservation, and only if the meat is picked up at the farm. Please make reservations well in advance, as certain times of the year see a heavy demand for our free-range turkey.

Our customers are always asking our advice as to the best way to season our free-range duck and turkey meat and of course, our duck egg creations. Our response is always the same: Messuri Family Farm recommends J.R. Watkins Natural Products.
The J.R. Watkins product line includes herbs, seasoning blends, gravy and soup bases, organic flavoring extracts, natural home care and home remedy formulations.
J.R. Watkins is based in Winona, Minnesota. The company has been conducting business since 1868. The history of the company is, in itself, a piece of Americana. J.R. Watkins strongly believes in nurturing community ties and in doing good things for people simply because it is the right thing to do.
Before we became independent sales representatives for J.R. Watkins products, we were J.R. Watkins customers. Just like our duck eggs, duck and turkey meat, the entire J.R Watkins product line is all natural and is made with the highest integrity.
