I’ve never eaten goose before – what kind of meat is it?

Goose is a rich, dark meat, quite unlike chicken. Cooked properly, it is tender and juicy and absolutely delicious. Crispy goose skin is also wonderful and goose fat makes the best roast potatoes you’ll ever eat.

What comes with my goose?

All geese come with giblets (heart, liver, neck and gizzard) and a bag of fat from the goose, which you can use to make delicious roast potatoes. These items are included in the weight of your goose.

How do I cook my goose?

Our geese come with their own cooking instructions/recipe which gives a step by step guide to roasting your Christmas goose.

How will my goose come?

All our birds are oven-ready and come with a bag of giblets and goose fat. If you’d like your goose to have the neck left on, or if you would prefer to gut the bird yourself, please let us know in your order details

How should I store my goose before I eat it?

Take your goose out of the box and bag (this is very important as it will stop it from sweating) and store it in your fridge, below 3 degrees celsius.
