Free Range Goose From Shropshire
A Victorian Treat – Pre Order for Christmas 2020.
Alternative Meats are delighted to once again be able to present these beautifully plump Free Range Geese bred by the Brisbourne Family in Nesscliffe, Shropshire, with whom they have worked with for many years. The geese are reared free range, grazing fields adjacent to the old A5 which passes through Nesscliffe, they have become quite a local landmark. They graze and roam freely with ad lib supplements of home produced wheat (grown to Farm Assured standards), potatoes and a specially prepared corn ration, without the use of growth promoters and additives.
At night the geese are brought indoors, for protection reasons, bedded down daily on fresh straw. Though sheltered at night they are still open to fresh air and natural light. All the geese grow naturally to reach full maturity.
Brisbourne Geese are traditionally processed in December for freshness, and the weight range may vary but is always above 5.5kg. Each bird is individually dry plucked and waxed then hung for 7-10 days in a chilled environment to produce a deep and succulent flavour. All birds are dressed and finished by hand.
