How Munns started rearing geese.
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 installation of the surrounding electric fence means that they are now safe 24 hours a day from those bushy tailed predators…!!
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.
Alongside the Geese, there is a strong demand for our free range Goose Fat, which is becoming very popular with the public thanks to many celebrity chefs using it on their television shows. With its relatively low proportion of saturated fatty acids when compared to other animal fats such as dripping or lard, it’s not hard to see why many more people are turning to this product.
Munns Goose fat is sold in 150 gram jars and is available most of the year.
