Our journey with brown African geese began in 1970! Since then, we have bred, raised, and purchased many brown African geese in our efforts to maintain a nice show-type goose and gander. The quality of the fowl improved greatly with the addition of goslings purchased from Halback Poultry Farm (APA Master Exhibitor) in the early 1980s. A few years later, we purchased two pairs of nice young adult geese from Duane Urch (APA Master Exhibitor). More recently, we made two trips to Ohio to purchase adult geese from APA judge and Master Exhibitor, Mark Nelisse. Our latest brown African geese added to the flock came from Ryan Gartman (APA Master Exhibitor) in 2015. Our goal is and has been for years to breed large framed Africans with nice heads.
We have a small gaggle of white Africans, all of which were purchased from or raised from geese purchased from Lance Ewert (APA Master Exhibitor). We have had great hatchability rates with the white Africans.
