Joe Jurgielewicz & Son

joe-jurgielewicz-and-son-smallThe heritage of Joe Jurgielewicz & Son is now in its fourth generation of raising Pekin Duck. They believe the proof of a conscientious farm operation can be seen and felt in the ecosystem around the farm. Their neighbors depend upon their responsible land stewardship. Jurgielewicz ducks deserve a clean and comfortable upbringing. Our clients are entitled to nothing less than a extremely wholesome product. By attending to these priorities, they have cultivated an environment that produces the most healthy and succulent ducklings in America.

To create that pièce de résistance, the artist will want to begin with a duckling that acts in concert with the culinary preparation. The secret to consistent succulence is the meat-to-fat balance. We patiently raise our ducks in living conditions, which includes both feed & housing requirements, to achieve a perfect meat-to-fat ratio. A happy duck makes for a healthy duck. A healthy duck makes for a tasty duck. A tasty duck makes for a happy chef. A happy chef will be able to produce a fabulous duck dish that will bring their patrons back again & again…& provide the best marketing possible….word-of-mouth. Try these tasty ducks…you will be thrilled you did! Be sure you check with your Halperns’ representative on the current items in inventory.
