About HV Farms

The Farm

Welcome to HV Farms. Our farm is located in Ferndale, New York,
on 200 lush acres in the Catskill Mountains, a lovely two-hour drive from New York City.
Our spacious cage-free barns shelter our ducks from varying weather conditions,
especially freezing conditions from September through May in the mountains, and
protect them from wildlife predators. 
We raise and process our Moulard ducks on the farm.  Each duck is individually
evaluated by a US Department of Agriculture Inspector under strict guidelines for
wholesomeness.  Please look for their seal of approval on all of our offerings.
HV Farms is committed to keeping our farm connected to consumers 
and chefs.  We celebrate America’s burgeoning interest in meeting the farmers that 
raise their food. At HV Farms, we take great pride in our stewardship of 
our ducks and believe that unbiased visitors should have the opportunity to visit us. Call 
to arrange a visit. Media are welcome by appointment. Pictures are permitted.  
From everyone at HV Farms, thank you for your patronage. If you’re ever 
in the Catskills, give us a call. We look forward to meeting you and showing you our 
The Ducks
The Moulard is a cross between the white farm duck, the Pekin, and a South American 
duck, the Muscovy. The Pekin has a mild flavor; the Muscovy, a gamy flavor. When the 
two breeds are crossed, they produce a high quality, deliciously unique flavor sought 
after by the finest chefs worldwide. 
The Whole Duck
At HV Farms, we utilize the whole animal: bones, meat, feathers, offal – 
everything has a purpose. Careful farm practices produces a duck that allows us to offer 
our customers a wide range of unique products, from our meaty Magret, to our buttery duck fat.
