GOOSE 8-9lb Embden
One 8-9lb bird
Individually packed. Innards not included.
The Heritage Goose is a delectable option for the poultry lover. For Americans, these birds may seem a bit Old World and intimidating to cook, but the truth is they are no more difficult to prepare than a chicken or a turkey and they are incredibly tasty boasting sweet and earthy flavors and rich silky textures. Like all heritage breeds, the goose needs slow, gentle cooking for a crisp skin and a succulent moist interior.
These geese are raised outdoors on pasture and ponds with no hormones or antibiotics at Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch in Lindsborg, Kansas. Farmer Frank Reese is considered by many to be the preeminent poultry farmer in America.
Dating back at least 200 years, Embden Geese originated in—and take their name from—the Embden region of northwestern Germany. In 1821, this breed made its way to Boston and quickly became one of the most popular domesticated geese breeds.
Their large size, as well as their docile temperament, point to a possible relation with the Toulouse breed. The Embden boasts brilliant white plumage, bright orange bills, and, perhaps most striking of all, vivid blue eyes.
Similar to the Toulouse, Embdens are rich and fatty birds, ideal for a festive holiday meal. Because these birds are active and athletic, known to enjoy a diet supplemented by kale and other leafy greens, the meat has a much subtler, more nuanced flavor with a less greasy texture than that of a commercial goose.
