John and Rose Aschenbrenner run Pleasant View Farm in Puyallup, Washington. When the couple retired a few years ago, they traveled to France to learn about raising ducks—they came home inspired and founded the farm. The Aschenbrenners are dedicated to providing high-quality ducks and foie gras by raising their animals with the utmost care and respect, feeding them an all-natural grain diet, and giving them a great home.
