Geese have high protein meat, and lay large eggs in the spring.  They are great for keeping watch over your farm and helping to keep predators at bay.  Contrary to belief, geese can be wonderful pets, and friendly too.  They have a long lifespan and are easy keepers who prefer to stay outside even in the dead of winter.

Sebastopol –  A frizzled  goose, that is ornamental, but also dresses out well, good egg layers, and friendly.  They are not quite as hardy as other geese, and we recommend having a good shelter for them during the wet and cold weather.  We breed curly breasted and smooth breasted, grey & white geese.
