A Homesteaders Guide To Raising Geese- Book Review & Giveaway

Do you have a funny Geese story? Chances are you, or someone you know, has a story involving a goose and I’m willing to bet it involves being chased.
While geese may not be the first animal you think of when adding livestock to your homestead, they really should be.
Geese are an amazing multi-functional livestock animal and deserve a place on your farm.

Raising Geese: Modern Guide to Keeping Geese

I have a fond, yet funny memory of geese that actually made it to the local paper.
We have a shopping area that host a pond in the middle. Wild ducks and geese call this pond home while tourist enjoy feeding them while observing their funny antics.

While working at one of the stores, my mother befriended a lone goose who could never find a mate. The locals named the goose Lucy.
My mother talked with Lucy daily like an old friend, chatting and honking away.
After a while Lucy started to withdraw from society and their daily chats, suffering from what my mother would only refer to as a broken heart.

Being the matchmaker (and busy body) that my mother is, she wrote an article about lonely Lucy and needed help finding her a soul mate.
Low and behold, we found a Ricky to go with Lucy and the two lived happily ever after!

This touching love story between a lonely goose and finding her a mate, opened my eyes to the personalities of geese and changed my perspective.

About The Book: The Modern Homesteader’s Guide To Keeping Geese

While chickens preen in the spotlight, geese are the historic unsung heroes of small farms and homesteads. Providing weed control, large eggs, and entertainment, and acting as “security” over other animals, geese are the ultimate modern homesteading companion.

  • Profiles of breeds and how to select the best one for your needs
  • How to “imprint” goslings on a person
  • Feeding, housing, animal health, and cold weather care
  • Using geese for weed control, soil improvement, and as “watch-geese”
  • Cooking with goose eggs and meat
Additional coverage includes a look at the rich history of geese on farms in North America and Europe that will enhance any goose keeper’s enjoyment of these intelligent and unique birds.
This practical guide is a must-have essential for the kitchen table of homesteaders, small farmers, permaculturists, and professional farmers looking to add the power of geese to their land.
