Brittain Farms Ducks, Asheville Tailgate Market, NC

Frozen ducks are hard to sell, according to Joe Brittain of Brittain Farms in Mills River,  North Carolina.

I met him at the West Asheville Tailgate Market where he was trying to sell his frozen pecking style ducks. "People are interested, but nobody is buying," he said, adding that Asheville chefs were the first to reject his ducks.

It's not because they were bad or not USDA certified because they were good and processed through a USDA certified processing center. It was just a baffling lack of interest according to Brittain.

He was however having success selling chicken and duck eggs.
