What does "free range" mean?
Last Updated: 07/26/2012
Our geese are cage-free. They are started in straw bedded barns. When they are old enough to walk back into the barn fast enough to not get caught outside in a fast approaching thunderstorm they are given the choice of being outside or inside, weather permitting (hard rains, hail and snow are indoor days!). These outside lots offer them approximately 25 sq ft per bird, then when they are around 45 days old they get 60 or more sq ft per goose. By 8 weeks old they have about 120 sq ft per goose. Their water, feed, grit and hay are free choice (we do not, nor ever will, force-feed our geese).
