Mother goose gone missing...

Merry Christmas! Ho Ho Ho and all that guff! Bah humbug if you are that way inclined.

Mrs R has decided to offer a sacrificial goose for our Christmas meal this year. The question: where in the Basel region (CH, F or D) can we get a good quality and value feathery fowl?

This is a first for us, and our searches so far have revealed a farm somewhere in the CHongo charging 100 CHF for the privilege. Money is less the object that the principle of paying 100 chuffs for a bird, and we figure more experienced bods in the Dreilandecke than us must have come across this conundrum before.

Duck would apparently also be an option.

Recommendations welcome!

Thanks!

Larger Migros stores have whole goose, frozen. They cost SFr 45.50. I saw them today in Zürich City, and have seen then in central Switzerland so it's not just Zürich, and likely in Basel as well. We have had them before and enjoyed them very much.

Re: Mother goose gone missing...

Last week, I went to Manor to order a 10-12 kg turkey plus a large duck for my Turducken this weekend (as I've done in the past).

Delivery is confirmed for this Thursday (as requested).

They've been spot on every year that I can recall.

Re: Mother goose gone missing...

Update, the turkey and duck I ordered for today arrived on time, and the right sizes (10 and 3 kg, respectively).

Thanks, Manor!
