Free Range Christmas Goose

Appledore Geese is family-run business with a farming heritage that dates back to 1940 when Grandfather Frank Wreathall first started rearing turkeys. Today Clive and Andrew Wreathall farm over 1,200 hectares of Crown Estate farmland on the Romney Marsh in Kent and are passionate about the food they produce. With eighty years of experience in rearing Christmas turkeys behind them they are now raising geese to the same high standards.

As an alternative to Christmas turkey ,  roast Christmas goose – free-range and oozing with flavour – is very hard to resist.

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
