Meet Puddle Duck Farm owners Merridy Senior and Eben Hancock. Puddle Duck is a 100-year-old farm, purchased by the pair in 2012. Since then they have filled their days with working on house and barn improvements, caring for animals including cows, chickens, ducks, goats, and two cats. And in 2013 baby Sawyer joined the family.

The couple is not new to farming though. They actually began in 2009 when they became involved with running a local sugar bush just outside of Millbrook. The following spring, they added honeybee hives and discovered beekeeping. Finding Puddle Jump Farm to purchase was the next logical step.  

Now they focus on:  

Cut flowers – they planted 10,000 Gladiola bulbs the first year! Since then they have added sunflowers, zinnias, strawflowers, and asters. You can find their bouquets at the farm, community events, local markets, flower shops and the grocery store. 

Honey – their bees gather pollen and nectar from the wildflowers on the property. The Honey is unpasteurized and available in both liquid and cream form.  

Maple products – they have approximately 2000 taps to produce maple syrup at a sugar bush just outside of Millbrook. It takes 40 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup! In addition to maple syrup they produce maple butter, maple sugar candies, and granulated maple sugar.

If that was not enough, they also produce organic freezer meat and free range eggs.  All of the produce is grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or chemical fertilizers. 

Puddle Duck Farm also participates in a community farm, but that will be featured in another post!
