Revive tradition by eating goose at Michaelmas
Do you know that Michaelmas is a traditional time to eat goose?
When is Michaelmas day?
September 29 in most of the country
October 4 in Suffolk
October 11 in Norfolk.
It’s a Quarter Day that marks the start of the farming year, while Michaelmas Term begins the academic year in our most celebrated universities.
In times past geese would graze on the corn stubble fields after harvest, now they’re reared on grass. Either way, the ‘green goose’ makes a delicious meal to celebrate Michaelmas and many more restaurants are getting in on the act. We welcome news of restaurants serving goose for Michaelmas and we’ll help promote their menu.
