THE RUNNER DUCK MORNING & AFTERNOON PARADE

This waddling workforce is essential to the farm’s pest-control, consuming a startling amount of snails and bugs on their daily patrols. The ducks are also a big part of why Vergenoegd proudly carries WWF biodiversity certification.

We utilize 1070 Runner Ducks at the Vergenoegd farm to assist in the control of the snail and pest population in our vineyards, a practice we have been refining since 1984. We have a basic research and breeding program in place to keep our workforce of ducks productive, healthy and happy. Intrigued guests can take a tour of the duck pens and “breeding room” with one of our friendly duck herders!

Come and cheer the ducks on their way then stay a while and let us help you unfold the full Vergenoegd experience.

 

***

You are welcome to follow our ducks into the vineyards after their 07:00 parade on weekdays to see how they perform their eco-friendly duties of chemical-free pest control!
