Local Farm Fresh, Free-Range Duck Eggs

are Washoe Valley Duck Farm certified organic farm that produces duck eggs that are larger and more nutrient-dense than chicken eggs with more protein, omega-3s, and B-12 vitamins. The flavor profile is similar, though these free-range duck egg’s higher fat content makes for a richer texture, andideal for baking.

Did you know?

Under refrigeration (34 to 40 degrees F.), duck eggs can be kept safely for up to six weeks. By sealing freshly laid eggs in plastic bags, their refrigeration life can be lengthened to two months, as the bags help prevent moisture loss from the egg. Duck eggs have a longer shelf life than chicken eggs.

Farm History

A third-generation farmer in Sonoma County.

Anthony Bordessa knew from a young age that he wanted to carry on the Sonoma farming family’s legacy. Though his grandfather’s dairy is no longer in the family, Anthony grew up in the dairy supply store and helped his parents raise pastured chickens. After serendipitously discovering an internet article about duck eggs while searching the internet, Anthony learned for the first time about the tight-knit duck egg advocacy community that celebrates the egg for its lofty yolk, superior nutrient content and decadent richness. He decided to give duck egg farming a try with a starter flock of 60 ducks. Since 2012, Anthony's farm has since grown to a flock of over 4,000 of Golden 300 Hybrid Layer Ducks producing free-range duck eggs.

The Perfect Hard-Boiled Duck Egg

The "M"Secret.  Heat water (about 2 inches of water) to boiling in a large pot. Set a colander, vegetable steam on top of the pot or use a rice cooker. Rinse your eggs in warm water and place them in steamer container. 

Cover and steam the eggs for 11-12 minutes for a single layer of duck eggs and then gently set the eggs into a bowl of ice water until they are cool enough to peel.

Roll each egg on the counter to break the shell and then crack the wide end of the egg and peel them. You will get perfectly peeled eggs.  And you won't get that grayish green rim along the yolk that results from cooking the eggs for too long or cooling them too slowly.
