Treat yourself to Michaelmas goose

What do you know about Michaelmas? September 29 in most of the country.

Eat a goose on Michaelmas Day and, according to folklore, ‘you’ll not be wanting for money in the year ahead.’

You can obtain a bird from our members who produce
Michaelmas geese and at the increasing number of restaurants putting the treat on the menu for this special time. Enjoy!
