Where To Buy Duck Locally (RTP/NC)
Is there a place in or near the RTP (or in NC) where I can buy whole ducks from? I would like to buy in bulk and fresh is preferable... I tried searching for duck farms in NC but I didn't really get anything...
You could try Grand Asia Market in Cary. They have pretty much any off the wall ingredient you could think of.
You could call Cliff's in Carrboro. My guess is that the answer will be no, but it is worth a shot. The only time I've found duck legs around here is from him.
Fernhill Farm in Orange County sells local whole ducks. I am sure there are other local farms that sell duck, it's just a matter of checking. (919) 933-3050, Fernhill Farm. They also have a website that typically needs updating.
You can also check with Southern Seasons and Whole Foods, both of which carry duck at various times. Check with Weaver Street Co-op.
I don't know if these 3 places will have exactly what you want, but the possibilities look good. I went to the NC Farm Fresh page at the NCDA site: http://www.ncfarmfresh.com/
Then I searched for duck and got these:
Cane Creek Farm, Snow Camp
Holland Farm, Warrenton
Yellow Wolf Farm, Lansing (in Ashe County
Each farm shows a link to their website.
