What is the FSNYC Duck-Off?
It's a duckie cook-off! Guests will "get ducked" on Sunday, March 10th when they taste the ducky creations of a room full of amateur and professional cooks who will prepare their most creative, duck-dominated dishes using ducks from the famous Hudson Valley Duck Farm ---just think of the duck-a-licious possibilities; charcuterie, roasted, smoked, braised.

About Hudson Valley Duck Farm
At Hudson Valley Duck Farm they believe birds need room to spread their wings. For the past thirty years, they've raised their ducks cage-free, which means they can socialize, run around, and preen their feathers as often as they please. Their ducks are raised on a high-quality, pure vegetarian diet exclusively blended in their own farm recipe. This ensures healthy ducks that are never treated with antibiotics or hormones. Hudson Valley Duck Farm sells their duck at New York state farmers markets and on their website.
