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.

Each year more families are choosing a goose for the Christmas meal … and discovering just how delicious and different is the flavour and succulence. Reliving the days when the goose held pride of place at Christmas.

And, of course, it’s not just the meat that so highly prized. Goose fat, which is drained off during cooking, adds a wonderful flavour to roast potatoes and parsnips. It’s also delicious eaten on toast for breakfast well into the new year.

But don’t delay ordering. The increasing demand means that some butchers and farm shops sell out early. And you can also order a goose for delivery to your door from our members.

More restaurants, too, are introducing goose to the autumn menu….. like The Library at Norwich serving goose breast salad as a starter. If you’re adding goose to the menu, do let us know and we’ll help promote your venue.
