From what I have read raising geese seems very easy. I have ducks so it sounds like they are very similar in many ways. Having eaten both on numerous occasions, I know that they taste the same. #Geese are known to be equally if not better forager than ducks. That is always a good thing when you have lots of land for them to run on. This helps keep food cost down, as I have seen with my ducks who many days eat off the land entirely. Some say that geese can serve as guard animals to the farm, and given their large size and sometimes grumpy disposition I can see why.
