Well!!! – November has started wet and the cereal crops on the farm have finally got what they needed … RAIN …
The free range geese are doing very well this year. Grass this time of year is of low quality and doesn’t grow very fast and contributes the absolute minimum to the goose’s overall dietary needs, so, as is usual for early November, we bring the geese in off the large paddocks onto smaller strawed areas. During damp cold weather that often typifies November, we can bed the geese more effectively on a limited area thus keeping them warmer, dryer and more comfortable and the loss of the low value grass has insignificant impact on the birds performance.
There has been an enormous amount of interest in our geese this year and orders are well ahead of last year. Word is getting out that we are the premier goose producers in East Anglia. Why not contact us and get a goose direct from the farm, or if you prefer you could go to your local butcher.
Remember with a Munns free range goose you are guaranteed a truely seasonal fayre, indeed British free range goose is the only commonly eaten totally seasonal bird that we have left in this country.
I had to drop by to say what a fantastic goose you supplied us this year! I even followed your cooking guidelines, including your stuffing recipe from your leaflet, and everything went down a storm – it came out golden and crispy with plenty of breast meat for everyone. I used some of the fat for the roast potatoes and they were delicious, with plenty left over for the freezer. One happy customer.
Have a Happy New Year and well done on a great product.
Thank you both for your very kind comments. It is great to hear back from our customers and to know our geese are received so well.
All of us at L & AE Munns wish our customers & friends a very happy and prosperous New Year.
Yet another delicious goose!!! Goose pies for lunch tomorrow and jars of fat stored in the fridge for roasties!! Can’t wait for next years!!????
Have read the emails and strongly agree with them. The goose I had from yourselves last year (2011) was excellent, I have recommened you to all my friends and am trying to get them to order from you for themselves. The quality of service and friendlyness is fantastic. The birds taste fantastic and beat turkey every time.
I wish you a great Christmas (2012) and fantastic New Year.
