  1. I have not bought duck from Summerton Farm, but I have bought their beef and pork - delicious! The listing says they raise ducks, so could be worth an e-mail or call -

    1. I don't know if you consider West Haven central Ct, but I just got off the phone with them for my weekly order and Bella Bella Gourmet does sell retail The phone # is 203-937-9389. Ask for Bob. They also ship if you can't get to WH.

      1. Perhaps try The Meat House: http://www.themeathouse.com/ -- they have a branch in Avon.

        1. Just saw them today at Stop & Shop in East Hampton. They had whole birds and also boneless half breasts. Could they be previously frozen? Don't know.

          1. Maybe check your Whole Foods again, or talk to the meat people there; the Milford Whole Foods has Bell & Evans fresh ducks for $3.99/lb. They're in the case with turkeys.

            1. Try Nodine's

              1. Did you have any luck finding the Duck?

                  i did finally see frozen ones in the Bishop's Corner Whole Food, still no fresh ones. i have decided to chicken out (pun sort of intended) for now, but keep everyone's suggestions in mind for the next upcoming holiday when i have more time to take a road trip. (Meat House was a no) thanks for all the ideas and have a Chowy Thanksgiving!
