fresh goose?

For years, we bought a fresh goose for Christmas dinner at the Fresh Pond Whole Foods. This year -- no geese. "We decided not to do it this year," said the meat guy.

Any convenient alternative suggestions as the clock ticks down . . .?

      Thanks. I'm usually more diligent about checking old threads but was so frustrated by the turn of events at Whole Foods I felt compelled to post immediately . . . .

    2. Update: Wilson Farms says they will have a new shipment of fresh goose tomorrow morning, 12/24, no advance order required.

      1. This reminds me of WF's silly "no-lobster" policy - without the moral posturing. WF is more and more not about giving customers what they want - "oh, we just couldn't be bothered this year, sorry."

        1. John Dewar and Savenors should have them.
