Welcome to the British Goose website - your window on the goose world.
Where to order and buy your Christmas goose, Michaelmas goose or in season goose eggs….. how to cook, recipes, tradition and much more.
Goose is the most traditional choice of poultry for Christmas and is still reared today in much the same way as through the centuries. In small flocks, out in the open on free range, with grass meadows replacing the corn stubble fields.
Now we’re into the new year our thoughts turn to goose eggs.
Mother goose will start laying next month with tradition dictating that the first egg should arrive on Valentine’s Day. Sometimes we’ve enjoyed pancakes made with goose eggs on Shrove Tuesday … but as this day comes very early - on February 9 - we may not be so lucky this year unless the mild weather encourages an early start to lay. But actually this is more dependent on the effect of the lengthening hours of daylight rather than unseasonal warmth!
See how the catering students at Norwich City College made pancakes with goose eggs.
And see where you’ll be able to buy them from our members
as well as some delicatessens and food stores.
