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:
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.
