GOOSE CONSULTS 

A one-on-one opportunity to learn about geese and receive advise customized for your homestead or farm

Goose information can be hard to come by, and it’s even harder to find information that pertains to your farm’s needs.  One-on-one goose consults will help you make the right goose keeping decisions and help to educate you on these amazing birds.

 

Consult information will cover:

  • What breed of goose may work best for your farm

  • Spacing, feed, and water requirements of geese

  • Imprinting — will it benefit your flock

  • Keeping a mixed flock or not — what will work best for you

  • And more!

 

Consults are $25/hour.  All meetings are via Zoom and will be followed up with an email going over what we discussed and including some further resources.  For local Maine farms, a live consult may be considered at an additional fee for travel.

 

If you are interested in adding geese to your farm and think a consult would be helpful for you please email hostilevalleyliving@gmail.com, subject line: “Goose Consult”

 

Please note: I am not a registered veterinarian.  I am occasionally asked to diagnose health issues with geese and I will do my best to point you in the right direction, but encourage you strongly to reach out to a vet if you are concerned about your animal’s health.
