The life of all our ducks at Dansk And begin at Denmarks only hatchery for commercial ducks at Lars Christophersens farm in Aarup on Funen. The hatchery has existed for almost fifty years and four years ago, Hans took over the production from his father. Together with his wife, Lars runs the hatchery and they ensure that the ducklings are transported to the producers on the same day as they are hatched. From the middle of November until the end of December the hatchery is transformed into Christmas tree production for export.
