We are also now opening up our Wholesale season so if you are local to South Central PA and looking for 100 eggs or more at a time, please contact us for pricing and availability.

Farm Update Jan 24 2021
Our girls have slowed down laying a bit, thanks to the cloudy weather lately (it's still rather early in the season though). If you were to order today, we would expect shipment of fresh eggs the week of Feb 8th or 15th.
Farm Update Jan 16 2021
As of today, approximately 15% of our girls are laying eggs and we expect to see that increase daily as we move closer to Peak season (late Feb/March). If you were to order today, we would expect shipment of fresh eggs the week of Jan 25th or Feb 1st. (The exception is the single Jumbo gift pack, it will always be filled first as those eggs usually do not fit in our normal shipping foams! We will also try to prioritize customers that have chosen the subscription option, the intent is to keep delivery times around the same time each month)
All other Preorders will be filled in the order of receipt, based upon availability. **You will see delivery times become more immediate as we move into peak season.
Free US Shipping included on all orders!
*All eggs are shipped fresh on Monday or Tuesday to ensure arrival before the weekend.
*Unless otherwise stated, please understand that orders may be delayed due to availability, especially JUMBO. Enter checkout comments if you need them by a certain date.
Our Egg Classifications:
Our Standard Goose Egg will weigh between 5.5 to 6 ounces each
Our Jumbo Goose Egg will weigh at least 6 ounces each, with most in the high 6 oz-low 7oz range....but occasionally 8-9 oz if your timing is right! We will always send the largest/heaviest available in our Jumbo packs but please note that anything over 9 oz will be sold in our Jumbo Gift Packs because they will not fit in our normal egg shipping foams. *Jumbo eggs are in limited quantities, produced only by our older and heavier Embden & Toulouse geese. Delivery may be delayed, please let us know if you need them by a certain date.
Small Goose Eggs are also available in our discount packs. Each small egg will weigh between 4 to 5 ounces. These eggs are mostly produced by our first year geese and they are the perfect size for breakfast, about the size of 2 Duck Eggs.
Can't decide? Try our fun Sampler dozen packs and try all three sizes!
Goose eggs are a very special seasonal treat and are loved by bakers, prized by Chefs and even sought after by crafters.
A typical goose egg weighs about 144 grams but some of our Embden can regularly produce 250+ gram eggs and our all-time farm record is a 12.03 ounce egg with a 12.5 inch circumference and nearly 9 inch diameter!! (from February 2020 that was sent to a customer!)
Goose eggs are great for baking! They have a noticeably higher yolk to white ratio and create heavier, moister and denser baked goods. Try them in a sponge cake recipe, it's amazing!
Our Geese are raised on pasture, pond and woodlands and are supplemented with our farm blend of grains. This varied diet creates beautiful orange yolks that are full of flavor!
Goose eggs are collected multiple times daily and are typically available January-June, with Fall laying these past few years. Each Goose will only lay 35 eggs per year on average so they really are a rare seasonal treat!
Goose Eggs contain more nutrients and vitamins than most other eggs!
Goose Eggs are:
High in Phosphorus
High in Riboflavin
Very high in the antioxidant Selenium
A great source of protein and healthy fats
High in Iron
High in Calcium
A good source of the antioxidant Lutein
Very high in vitamin B
Goose eggs give you a 112% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin B12 for every 100 grams, while a duck’s egg can give you 63% RDA. A Chicken Egg comes in even lower at only 33% RDA for every 100g.
**Keep in mind that our Standard Goose egg weighs an average of approx 155grams!*
Also high in panothenic acid, B-12, riboflavin, thiamin, folate, and B-6
A goose egg simply has more of vitamins A, B, D, and E
Goose eggs are prized by chefs for their extra large creamy yolks and their protein rich whites, making them perfect for making fresh pasta and other homemade dishes.
Goose eggs are a good substitute for some folks with chicken egg allergies (as always, confirm with an allergist/doctor if you have egg allergies)
You can use Goose Eggs in any recipe. A good rule of thumb is to use one standard goose egg for every three to four chicken eggs. Knowing that a normal chicken egg measures 1/4 cup is most helpful.
Goose egg shells are much harder than chicken egg shells, making them popular with crafters such as Pysanky and Batik. If you are looking for a particular size for craft making please let us know.
Goose eggs are popular with Pregnant Women as they are believed by some to help in fetal development, especially brain and nerve tissue, due to their nutrient rich contents. Eggs are recommended to be fully cooked.
