The meat of the pasture duck is rather dark and strong. Due to the natural feeding of our pasture ducks and unlimited free range, the meat is beautifully firm and low in fat. It is ideally suited for a delicious feast.
Fitmeat's pastured ducks are a first-class delicacy. In addition to whole animals, we also supply the coveted duck breasts. The animals grow up in the wild and have a particularly good meat consistency. The skin becomes very crispy when roasted and the meat stays nice and juicy. Farmer Bernhard from Lower Austria carefully raises his pasture ducks in the meadows.

Duck or goose?
What are the differences?
Basically, geese and ducks are related. Nevertheless, the meat or the structure is quite different. If you prefer lean meat or want a low-calorie version, duck is the right choice.
Why poultry from Fitmeat?
We also pay attention to the highest quality and real taste in our poultry! We therefore source 100% of our poultry from selected small farmers who raise their animals with care and great passion. When raising the animals, we always pay attention to natural growth, which additionally benefits the quality of the meat.
In the beautiful Waldviertel in Lower Austria, our chickens and geese are allowed to live a really fine life. With purely natural feed to be taken freely and unlimited outdoor exercise or swimming fun in the lake.
Quantity per person
We recommend one pasture duck for three to four people.
Herkunft und Haltung
Our ducks grow up in the wonderful Lower Austrian Waldviertel under the best conditions. On the large property, they can waddle at will across the lush meadows and help themselves to the natural food. Bathing fun in the nearby pond is also on the ducks' agenda - but of course only in a flock
The first-class conditions inspire the meat quality. Due to the freedom of movement and the feed, the ducks develop a wonderful flavour of their own without putting on too much fat.
In general, ducks contain less fat than geese. If you want to save calories, for example, it is best to choose duck breast without skin. In addition, duck meat contains significantly more iron than goose. Due to its magnesium and vitamin B1 content, the meat provides micronutrients that the human body can make good use of.
