Greg and Jodi Clarke farm free-range Aylesbury ducks on their 16-hectare property overlooking Port Campbell, near the Twelve Apostles and Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.
They began with 30 ducklings and no idea about what they were doing in 2009. The couple chose the Aylesbury for its historical connections. It is the classic English table duck and was wildly popular in the 19th century.
In late 2012 they began rearing Pekins (and feeding them strawberries and other fruits). In November 2015 they published a book featuring duck recipes from the chefs they sell their ducks to as well as stories from their farming adventure. Since December 2016 they have been exporting a small number of ducks to Hong Kong.
