Grandma Duck's Farm is a farm located in Quacktown, on the outskirts of Duckburg.

Description

A roomy estate with an undeniable old-timey charm, Grandma Duck's Farm is the home of Elvira Duck and her farmhand grandnephew Gus Goose, and also acts the rallying point of the entire Duck clan, for holidays as well as in times of crisis. It is also home to a wide assortment of friendly barnyard animals, all of whom Grandma knows by name.

The Farm has a fair few secrets too, such as the magical Triple Distelfink painted upon it by a Traveling Painter long ago, responsible for Daphne and Gladstone's unearthly luck—and Donald Duck's jinx! In the 1920's, it served as the Duck family home, and Donald Duck and Della Duck spent most of their youth there.[1]

In 1952, Grandma reflected that she had been using the road from her Farm to the city for “fifty years”.[2] Indeed, when Scrooge McDuck bought Killmule Hill in 1902 and came to Duckburg to get settled there, he found the Duck clan inhabiting a different farm, located directly at the bottom of the Hill. Before long, Scrooge built his first Money Bin on top of the Hill, kickstarting Duckburg's development into a major city, with the area around the Bin becoming city centre — explaining Grandmas move away.[3]

Behind the scenes

It was established in Elvira Duck's third-ever appearance, Where's The Cow? (1943), that she lived on a farm, though it was not itself seen until 1950's Grandma Duck, Homespun Detective or Donald's Grandma Duck (it is unclear which story was published earlier).
