Out of stock
Having a more pronounced flavour than a hens egg, but slightly milder than a duck egg. A Goose egg is simply a meal in itself eaten boiled, scrambled, or fried and shared. As with all eggs they can be used as an ingredient in baked dishes such as gratins and quiches or as the base for the finest Yorkshire pudding.
Our Geese lay their eggs between Spring and early Summer by free roaming in our fields. With access to grass all year round and free to roam, they produce the most delightful eggs with deep orange yolks!
Uses for Goose Eggs
Goose eggs can be used in exactly the same way as chicken eggs. The only difference is their size. About 3 to 4 times the weight of a chicken egg, they can be used in cooking in the same way. If a recipe is asking for 3 eggs, one goose egg may do.
Examples of use for goose eggs:
- Soft boiled: To get a nice runny soft boiled goose egg, boil for 6 minutes. Read more here ….
- Hard boiled: Boil for about 8 to 10 minutes to get a hard boiled egg, and use in the normal way.
- Blowing: Its great fun for kids to blow goose eggs and then paint and decorate them, especially around easter time. Use the egg blown out of the shell to make scrambled egg or omelette.
About Our Geese
Our Geese are kept naturally, predominantly eating fresh grass. In February, in preparation for egg laying, we may supplement their feed with a premium quality specialist goose breeders feed.
At this time of year, the grass can be low in nutrition, and supplementing their feed provides necessary minerals and vitamins in preparation for the laying season and the number of goose eggs they can produce.

Recycle & Re-use Jars & Egg Boxes
We are always grateful for clean half dozen egg boxes & the return of our glass jars for re-use
Recycle Glass Jars
After you have finished with your honey, jam, chutney or pickle, we can re-use the undamaged jars.
12oz Hexagonal Jars (Our Jams and Honey)
8oz Hexagonal Jars (Our Chutney, Pickle and Curds)
Unfortunately, we can only accept the types of jars we sell.
The lids can not be re-used, so are sent for recycling, but the glass jars are washed, cleaned and sterilised prior to being refilled with our delicious preserves and honey.
So if you have bought our preserves or honey, rather than throwing the jar away, just drop it off at Chilcotts Farm the next time you are passing.
Recycle Your Egg Boxes
To reduce the impact on the environment, we can re-use half dozen egg boxes.
Whether egg boxes from us or used egg boxes from the supermarket, we can re-use them.
We can only use egg boxes that are clean & undamaged, but at the end of their life, any egg boxes we can't re-use we compost.
When passing Chilcotts Farm, just drop them off.
