A Book Review & Giveaway: Homesteader’s Guide to Keeping Geese

A Book Review & $200 Giveaway: The Modern Homesteader's Guide to Keeping Geese

Back in April of 2014, two goslings named Phoebe and Finn entered my life. They were peeping bundles of joy filled with energy and ready to take on the world. I didn't know it at the time, but that day, my life changed for the better. I imprinted on them, and as time went on, the attachment only grew. They have given me unconditional love, days full of adventure and most of all, a better sense of the world around me. Raising any animal is truly a rewarding experience. Geese are the guard dogs of the farm. They will teach you how to have patience and laugh at the silliest little things. You can read more about the beginning of their adventure here.

ABOUT THE BOOK

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.

    I’m not a huge fan of geese. I remember when I was a child and used to live in the countryside, I was super scared by geese; they always came to me making those really weird noises. Really scary for a kid.

    They are just soooo cute! We have been thinking about getting hens for a long time with my husband, but still don’t dare. Geese look very nice (and somehow smarter)! 🙂
