I’ve kept chickens and turkey and now quail, but I had never kept geese before. So I was so excited to get a chance to review The Modern Homesteader’s Guide to Keeping Geese by Kirsten Lie-Nielson because it covers everything you need to keep about keeping waterfowl. Be sure to check out the book and then look below for a fantastic $200 value giveaway sponsored by Homestead Bloggers Network and New Society Publishing.
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.
