Free Range Geese For Christmas
Foraging for berries in the hedgerows and orchards helps these birds develop a natural and distinctive flavour that makes Appledore Geese an ideal choice for the festive season. Reared with the greatest care for welfare and the environment, the birds are housed in buildings giving both natural light and ventilation, with the free range geese roaming grassy paddocks during the day. At night all the birds are bedded down on the farm’s home-grown wheat straw.
After reaching full maturity the birds are slaughtered on the farm, avoiding the stress to the birds of long distance transportation. They are then dry plucked and hung for at least seven days. This allows them to mature and develop the natural flavours unique to this traditional method of production.
All Appledore Geese are wrapped in greaseproof paper and presented in a carry-home box, along with, vacuum-packed giblets
