Do you have a Whole Foods market in your area? They sell fresh free-range &/or organic geese for the holidays. While they usually keep a few in the case, it's best to pre-order to ensure a bird.

We bought one one year. Cost about $45 & frankly I didn't see any difference between it & the frozen organic &/or free-range geese I now buy every year from any one of our local supermarkets - including Wal-Mart of all places!! In fact, the WalMart birds have been the best so far. The birds are always juicy & delicious, run approx. $2.69-$2.89/pound (so around $30-$35 or so depending on the size of the bird) & we've been roasting one every year for Xmas dinner for the last 20 years. Any leftovers go into our traditional New Year's Day "Cassoulet".

You could ask at Wegmans, if they haven't got them in stock they could probably get some for you.

If you wait till it's closer to the holiday season, most of the supermarkets will carry a few. You could also google local poultry farms.

A nice tasty plump fresh goose is generally a seasonal delicacy. A frozen one might be easier to find.

If you have a local grocery store that still has a meat counter with real people behind it, or a real butcher shop - they might be able to order one for you.

If all else fails: Lobel's has Free Range and Organic fresh poultry - "all-natural and raised on small Amish and Mennonite farms in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania Dutch country."

Yes, goose is very seasonal beast, unless you buy frozen, here in the UK. the traditional time is Michaelmas. I usually notice them arriving in Novemberish, but mainly out for Christmas.

I love roast goose.
