- 1x Duck small (feeds 3)
- 1x Seasonal organic veg box - small
Freshly picked festive veg and a plump duck – the main ingredients for your Christmas dinner, delivered straight from the farm. The showstopper: a small organic duck, with crisp skin and rich meat. Ours are slow-grown and truly free range, for succulent meat that’s full of natural flavour. Use the fat for the very best roasties. Alongside, 7 varieties of seasonal veg.
Feeds 3 people generously.
The veg in your box is grown in our own fields, or by our small-scale farmer friends. Our organic free-range ducks are reared by Ross Gardner, whose family have been farming poultry for half a century. They certainly know how to keep their birds happy; the farm is Soil Association certified, for the best possible standard of welfare.
How to prepare
Duck: 2 hours before cooking, lightly prick the skin all over and season generously with salt and pepper. Remove the bag of giblets from the cavity. Preheat the oven to 220°C, cover the duck with foil and roast for 30 mins. Remove the foil, baste with the fat and reduce the heat to 180°C. Roast for 30 mins per kilo, basting again halfway through. To check the bird is cooked, insert a sharp knife into the thickest part of the leg where it joins the breast; the juices should run clear. Leave to rest for 20 mins before carving. Use the giblets and wing tips for stock/gravy.
