About this title:

Synopsis:

Raise a gaggle of geese, the unsung heroes of the small farm

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.

The Modern Homesteader's Guide to Keeping Geese covers everything you need to know to raise geese, including:

  • 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.

Review:

"If you are considering bringing geese into your life, this is an excellent resource to help get you started. In addition to detailed, easy-to-read information on everything from choosing breeds to keeping geese healthy, the author's bond with her geese is clear throughout. Get ready to ditch your pre-conceived notions about geese, and start enjoying the benefits of adding these useful, entertaining birds to your backyard or homestead."
― Victoria Redhed Miller, author, Pure Poultry: Living well with heritage chickens, turkeys and ducks , and the award-winning book Craft Distilling .

"It's always a joy to read a book written by someone who so clearly loves the subject about which they are writing. Such is the case with this book. Between the beautiful photographs and charming stories, Kirsten's infectious love of geese has even made me think about getting a few more goslings for our pond."
― Deborah Niemann, author, Homegrown and Handmade , Ecothrifty , and Raising Goats Naturally and the blog ThriftyHomesteader.com

"Everyone should have geese. Kristen does a great job extolling all the virtues of these great additions to any farm or homestead. Read this book for all you need to know about geese... and then get yourself some!"
― Dyan Twining, co-founder Urban Coop Company
