Description

The standout addition to our Christmas range, this exclusive Loose Birds goose is game hung for 14 days for outstanding flavour and quality. This is one of our festive specialities, and we recommend ordering as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. These geese are hatched by farmer Dr Paul Talling and raised outdoors on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Here, they plump up naturally on wild herbs, worms, and insects, supplemented by Paul's own cereal feed. The geese are free to roam the fields enjoying space, fresh air and sunlight, as well as the freedom to exhibit natural behaviours. These geese offer the most succulent, rich and flavoursome meat, which is further intensified and enriched by the process of game hanging.

All of our Christmas range delivered on 19th Dec to 23rd Dec is guaranteed to stay fresh until Boxing Day *except products containing pastry which are pre frozen. 48 hour deliveries (Highlands & Islands) may have a shorter life depending on dispatch times.

The weight of the goose includes the weight of the giblets and the accompanying fat.

About the cut

Whole Goose

Our whole geese are sourced from free range farms where they can plump up naturally. Typically more prized than turkey, geese take a lot more food to fatten, but the reward is delicious rich meat. We source geese for ample breast meat, before being expertly prepared and beautifully dressed, leaving the whole bird intact, with the giblets and fat. These birds are game hung to tenderise the meat, and intensify the flavour.
