Fresh Goose

stupiddog | Dec 6, 2009 05:39 AM

I'm starting to look for fresh goose for Christmas. I figured I'd post what I found here to see if anyone has anything else to add.

Whole Foods: Was told that they don't have goose because it doesn't meet their "quality standards." Don't know what that means and there were a bit snotty about it. I guess all those other years they had it they must have dropped their standards.

Savenors: Got them, traditional 10-13 lb range: $10/lb

Owens Poultry Farm in Needham: 10-11 lbs, $7.50/lb

Internet options so far:

www.lobel.com: 10-12 lb goose, $79 + $27 shipping

if money was no object I would consider:

http://www.sassafrasvalleyfarm.com/
Which have Gascon geese that look great, but they run around $90 and shipping to us is around $80.

I still have to make some more phone calls, including Dewars, etc. These are all fresh geese, not frozen.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
