Five Generations and more than 60 years later, Maple Leaf Farms duck continues to create culinary experiences from the kitchen table to restaurants around the world. Our farm to fork focus and vertical integration ensures that you are getting the tastiest duck in the most sustainable and humane way possible.

We knew from the start that treating our ducks right is our top priority. That's why we put care into every step of farming, feeding, and processing. We keep our ducks as happy and healthy as possible at our farms. They eat a healthy balance of grains and veggies and are free to roam in cage free barns. We knew this was a priority from the start, so we developed the first and only duck well-being guidelines with veterinarians and poultry scientists from all over the country. Our Trident Stewardship Program is the leading duck care program in the world.

Our sustainable focus continues into the processing plants, which are local, and are continually focused on reduction of materials and recycling programs. Further reducing our carbon footprint with optimized trucking, and even direct delivery to your door from our online store, are examples of how we continue to improve our farm to fork process.

Treating our employees right is just as important as treating our ducks right and delivering top quality products. Our employees are the lifeline of our company, and we consider them all part of our Maple Leaf Farms family. Our invaluable team has made us the top market leader in the duck industry for over 40 years. We grow together daily to create the best possible products for you.
