This Old Farm No Longer Processing Waterfowl

Effective immediately, we will no longer be taking in geese or ducks for slaughter and processing. The removal of pin feathers from ducks and geese in a manner that does not rupture the skin or damage the meat is difficult. It can be done with special equipment. We currently do not have enough demand for waterfowl processing to justify an equipment purchase to ensure you get the fantastic processing services we are able to offer with other species.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause our waterfowl customers. If you have questions about this change, please feel free to call us at 765-324-2161.

    Could we sign a waiver saying we won’t complain about pin feathers.

      Hi Jim,
      We went down that path already over the last year. Even with a waiver, everyone has a slightly different expectation of what constitutes an appropriate looking bird after processing. We gave the issue a lot of careful consideration, because we hate to withdraw a service, but it seems the only reasonable course for the foreseeable future.
