We started rearing “Free Range geese” in 1999 starting with 20 birds hatched out from locally purchased eggs in our own small incubator. These birds were the ultimate in “free range”. We had no fence at all in those days …!!! Sometimes we would not see the birds during the day after they were let out in the morning, until it was feed time in the evening, and time to be shut up for the night as a safety measure against foxes. We have progressed a little since then, our birds are still Free range but are confined on to about 8acres by a peripheral stock fence, surrounded by an electric fence to keep foxes out. Unlike those early days however the birds are now allowed to stay out, or come in at night, depending on what they decide themselves. The intallation of the surrounding electric fence means that they are now safe 24 hours a day from those bushy tailed preditors…!!
Nowadays our geese are brought in as day-old goslings and reared under Gas Brooders until about 3 weeks of age when they are allowed out to free-range, initially with night time shelter and after a further 2 weeks they take shelter at their own choice.
They are fed on an additive free diet from Bearts of Stowbridge www.bearts.co.uk a local supplier and home grown wheat.
During December when the birds have matured, all preparation is carried out on our farm, in purpose built buildings supervised by DEFRA vets and local Environmental Health Officers. For more deails and information about our geese and how we rear them, have a look at www.munnsgeese.co.uk
