    Wood Duck Landing Farm

    Wood Duck Landing’s philosophy is simple – sustainable environments and clean practices produce the tastiest and healthiest vegetables! We envision creating a place where people can see how different farming practices can create drastically different results. Our hope is to educate the public on what they are eating and where their food is sourced from, and prove that we can grow quality, safe, and sustainable produce.
