Joe Jurgielewicz & Son, Ltd. was founded on the core belief that all their ducks must be treated humanely. The ducks at the Jurgielewicz farm have been cared for by a veterinarian since Dr. Joe started the farm; his second son, Dr. Jim, earned his veterinary degree in 2015, and continues to ensure the Jurgielewicz ducks receive the highest quality duck health care. The Jurgielewicz ducks are raised free-roaming in large temperature-controlled barns and are fed only a nutritious diet of corn and soybeans. The ducks are never fed any antibiotics or hormones to promote growth. Joe Jurgielewicz & Son is the only duck farm in America with two “round-the-clock” veterinarians as well as a full-time duck welfare specialist to train employees and conduct duck welfare audits.
