Many people still hunt wild geese, but most goose meat for sale is farmed. Farmed goose ensures a steady supply of goose wholesale meat and allows for better quality control during breeding and production.

Goose meat is popular in several culinary traditions around the world and is often served for special occasions.

  • In Europe, roast goose is a holiday mainstay in many countries, particularly Germany, France, Poland, and Hungary.
  • Roast goose is considered a delicacy in many regions of China, especially in Hong Kong.
  • Though less prevalent in North America, goose still turns up in certain traditional dishes, especially in regions with a hunting culture.

Frequently Asked Questions About Goose Meat

Goose meat is nutrient-dense, rich in protein, and contains essential vitamins and minerals. However, it is higher in fat content compared to some other meats, particularly in the skin and liver. Therefore, moderation is advised, especially if you are watching your fat intake.

A whole goose typically weighs between 10-12 pounds, which should be enough goose meat to feed 8-10 people.

Roasting, braising, or smoking are all good ways to cook a whole goose. Goose breasts can also be smoked, as well as sauteed or grilled. Chefs often sear goose breasts on the stovetop to achieve a crispy skin and then finish cooking them in the oven at a lower temperature to ensure even doneness. Confit is a traditional French method where the goose meat, usually the legs, is slow cooked in its own fat until tender and then preserved in the fat. This technique results in tender and flavorful meat that can be used in various ways.

For whole geese or larger cuts like the breast, the USDA recommends cooking to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). For smaller cuts or individual portions, such as goose legs or wings, you may want to cook them to a slightly higher temperature, around 170°F to 175°F (77°C to 80°C). This will help render the fat and make the meat more tender.

Duck meat is known for its rich, flavorful, and slightly gamey taste. It is often described as tender and succulent when cooked properly.
