Awakenings of Spring on the Farm

The weekend saw life around the farm again as Maple Leaf Duck Farm and Ducks Unlimited each held annual events at Amish Acres, an interesting contrast of customers. Maple Leaf is the nation's largest producer of domestic duck. It is located in nearby Milford, Indiana. I am told the U.S. market produces several hundred thousand ducks per year whereas China produces well over a billion.

Ducks Unlimited is one of the most effective conservation groups in the country. Chapter events like we hosted are hugely successful, filling the coffers with proceeds from auctions of artwork, hunting gear, and door prizes.
