Organic Whole Goose

Deliciously old fashioned!

At Coombe Farm, we think the good old-fashioned goose is a much under-appreciated bird. Once upon a time every smallholding would have kept a goose to serve both as a guard bird (they can be quite mean and very noisy) and as Michaelmas or Christmas dinner. Because of the richness of their meat and the amount of fat they carry, geese never made it as commercial poultry. So these days, cooking a goose is really something very special indeed. With tender, dark meat and delicious crispy skin a goose on your Christmas table really is a taste of tradition.

Our Organic Geese are delivered fresh for Christmas, and are available for delivery on 20th, 21st and 22nd December.

Cooking instructions: How to cook a whole organic goose

Recipe: Spice roasted organic goose

All of our geese are of a Legarth type. They're reared in an organic, free-range environment with access to water for swimming and grass for nibbling. Like all large game birds, we feel that slow growth is critical to the taste, texture and finish of our geese. So they naturally mature to the age of 24 weeks. Once slaughtered, we dry pluck and wax the carcasses (to make sure there are no stubborn little feathers left) and hand them in a temperature-controlled environment for at least 10 days. This means the meat is relaxed and excess moisture has evaporated when you come to cook your bird.

When it comes to cooking your gooses, let's dispel the myth: it really isn't tricky. As long as you're prepared for a lot of fat, you'll have no problem. We recommend sitting your bird on the bars of an oven shelf with a deep roasting pan underneath. The fat will drip though into the pan, making it easy for you to drain it off into a waiting jar (you'll need a big one) every twenty minutes or so. If you do this you'll have no problem with smoking or smell. Serve your roast goose with cider gravy and all the traditional trimmings. 

Our cooking suggestion: do not stuff the cavity with stuffing but use the neck end.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday. Delivery charges for weekday delivery are £3.95 and Saturday delivery £6.95. You can also select pre-12 delivery option which is at a higher rate of £6.95 for weekday delivery and £8.95 for Saturday. If you spend over £80 you will receive free weekday delivery. The cut off period to get your order the next day is 12pm any order placed after that time will be delivered after 2 days. For example if you order after 12pm on Tuesday you will receive your box on Thursday.

  • Our products are sent to our customers frozen because when we started the business we looked into convenience for our customers. We found that sending the produce frozen meant that they could order for instance a month’s worth of produce and could go into their freezer until they are ready to use it. It also meant that there was less risk to the meat whilst been delivered as fresh meat can be delicate and risky.

  • All of our meat is butchered in house. In December 2018 our in-house butcher was built which means that we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

    You will find all the ingredients on the relevant product pages.

  • We have a dedicated page which explains all the different cuts and where they come from. Find out more here www.coombefarmorganic.co.uk
