Our succulent, slow reared, truly Free Range whole Geese make a fabulously rich Roast.
Produced for us by Robert Garner in Norfolk who also produces our free range turkeys.
Goose has a sumptuous, rich, buttery flavour - and is as close as Poultry gets to a beefy taste - mostly due to their free-roaming grassy diet.
Our Free Range Geese are slow reared from newly born Goslings in early spring which enables them to graze freely for the maximum possible time.
Geese do not lend themselves to intensive rearing.
Intensively reared Geese are slaughtered before the birds reach full maturity and many large producers rear Geese indoors in controlled environments - so their muscles do not fully mature and the birds will be floppy and wet in appearance.
Fully mature and full of flavour.
Unlike intensive producers which slaughter Geese at 18 weeks old, our Free Range Geese are slaughtered at 26 to 30 weeks old - only when they are fully mature and full of flavour.
This very special bird
They enjoy stress-free natural environments that allow them to develop their exceptional richly flavoured taste and tender juicy texture - whilst still yielding lots of that prized Goose fat for making the most fabulous roasted Potatoes and Vegetables to accompany this very special bird.
Goose is a flavoursome, high density meat which calls for smaller portions than other types of Poultry and best of all, there is little to no waste from a Goose
Dry plucked, hand finished and hung for a minimum of 10 days for rich, dark and succulent meat that can be cooked to perfection with a crisp golden skin. The giblets are included.
