Locally produced from happy, healthy and free-range hens. Available all year round at the farm.
As geese are seasonal birds they are only available fresh for Christmas and New Year or from the freezer for the rest of the year.
Our free-range geese can be heard from far and wide, chattering away day and night as they graze on grass and home-grown wheat. They arrive as day-old goslings in May and are a slow-growing breed which begin to go outside at a few weeks old; quite a spectacular sight along Ringinglow Road! They are brought into a straw filled barn at night (to protect from predators), gently herded by our sheepdog Tag, and are fed on home grown wheat, no additives or growth promoters.
After a happy life it's no wonder our geese are unmatched in taste, something which is helped by hanging the birds for up to 10 days to mature. Our geese are presented oven ready, usual weight range is between 10 to 14 lbs. A rich, deep flavoured meat, goose is an increasingly popular alternative to turkey at Christmas.
The goose and giblets require refrigerating separately after purchase.
If you require a goose for another occasion such as New Year,it may be frozen with no adverse effect on the product.
We usually have freezer space available to allow you to collect your goose for use after Christmas.

As well as supplying local restaurants, pubs and shops, we sell locally grown potatoes in bags from 2.5kg, 5kg, 12.5kg and 25kg.

Our turkeys are reared on the farm.

These are also hung to mature for around a week to produce a tender flavoursome bird.
They are sold oven ready, with giblets, in weight ranges from around 10lbs (4.5kg) to 20lbs (9kg) or more .
The turkey and giblets should be refrigerated seperatley after purchase.
