The history of Culver Duck dates back many years to the Long Island area of up-state New York. In 2015, Culver Duck Farm, Inc. was sold by the Culver Family to a very reputable individual that is involved in the Duck Industry of North America. Prior to the sale of the business, the Culver Duck operation was a family business, spanning five generations. During that time, and henceforth after the sale, the traditions of Culver Duck have been ongoing and improved to where it is today. From the humble beginnings of a family owned and operated company to what it is today, Culver Duck is, and has always been, one of cleanest and best tasting ducks money can buy. With the support and commitment of its other affiliated duck companies, Culver has the advancements in technology and genetics needed to be one of the major duck suppliers in the United States and abroad.
