All aspects of our duck production are owned and controlled by Silver Hill Farm from breeding, egg production, hatching and selection to processing and cooking.

The success of Silver Hill Farm lies in the unique Silver Hill Hybrid duck. Continually developed over the years, to produce a duck that is full of flavour, succulent, tender and consistent in its quality.

This breed is exclusive to Silver Hill Farm.

School Gardening: To promote gardening and good practice gardening John Joe Sherlock from Silver Hill Garden Centre and Raminta from the Silver Hill Farm Shop decided to donate plants to each school in the three parishes - Truagh, Donagh and Tydavnet. The school would prepare raised beds in which to plant the gifts of Cabbage, Celery, Lettuce, Cauliflower, Broccoli and strawberries. The pupils would attend them and help to grow them to harvesting stage, thereby learning all about nature and plant production. This is certainly a unique venture and has great possibilities for the children. It will be interesting to follow the progress of each of the schools over the next few months to see how they manage and what they produce. Some parents may get ready to do likewise at home as some of the enthusiastic pupils will want to have their own raised beds and grow their own plants as well applying the things they learn in school. This is a very practical method of promoting the interest in gardening and of learning about plant life and the food we eat. Well done to John Joe for this idea. Our pictures show the various school collecting their plants from John Joe and Raminta on Thursday, April 14th
