Brown African Geese

Contrary to their name, African Geese are actually thought to have origins in several continents before arriving in North American in the mid-1800s. Related to the Chinese Goose, they share a common ancestor, the Wild Swan Goose of Asia. 

African Geese are very large, maturing between 12.5 and 15.5 pounds and make an excellent meat bird.  Their meat is leaner than other goose varieties and the meat quality is superior in taste. 

African Geese will are known for their knob, which can take 2-3 years to fully develop. Special care must be taken in the winter, as the knobs can be prone to frostbite. Our Brown African Geese do not have a dewlap.
