We are proud to say that Middle Whitecleave Farm is 100% organic. Certified by the Organic Farmers and Growers, we adhere to the highest standards in the industry to ensure that our geese are completely natural in every sense, and taste great.
Middle Whitecleave Farm is a small, second generation family run business. All of our organic goslings are produced from fully organic parents and kept to full organic standards. We have our own organic breeding flock and hatch goslings for sale to other organic farmers, as well as to rear ourselves for the Christmas market.
The farm is registered with the Organic Farmers & Growers Ltd and each year an inspector visits and spends a whole day checking records and invoices, and walking round the farm to check the condition of the livestock and fields. All of this checking and certification is expensive but necessary to ensure that consumers can be confident they are getting genuine organic produce. We believe that by providing all our geese with as much space as possible it greatly benefits their development. This means that throughout their life the geese are less densely housed at night and have access to more grassland to explore and feed upon during the day.
In doing this we go above and beyond the requirements specified by the Organic standards. In running our farm according to strict Organic standards we not only produce quality chemical-free and GM-free geese but in doing so we're also helping lessen our environmental impact on the land, creating rural employment, and supporting a more sustainable approach to farming.
