Where can I purchase duck legs and thighs?
For the past few years I have made duck confit for the holidays and able to purchase large quantities of duck legs and thighs (as well as duck fat) from a Detroit poultry retailer. This year the retailer informs me that he is unable to obtain from his supplier, Culver Farms in Middlebury IN. I spoke directly to Culver Farms who explained that because they have seen a decline in orders from restaurants for duck breasts, they are not breaking down whole ducks to have legs and thighs separately. I spoke to a couple other duck farms and was told the same story.
As I do not wish to purchase a dozen whole ducks but just the legs and thighs, I am asking if anyone reading this post would know of a duck supplier that might have these parts available.
