Although it’s the traditional Dickensian Christmas dish, goose was once nearly forgotten as an entrée in the United States. Goose meat is darker, fuller-bodied, and more intensely flavored than turkey. Its skin has a higher fat content than other fowl, but much of the fat melts away during cooking, leaving deliciously tasty and succulent meat. The all-natural, free-range Schiltz products we offer at Prairie Harvest are a distinct breed of goose that is registered with the Department of Agriculture. They are raised and processed at a 2nd generation, family-owned, federally-inspected facility located on the windswept prairie of northeastern South Dakota.
