Well everyone should buy geese.  I have new trees in the yard with my geese
and I carefully protect my trees with lots of chicken wire or the geese will
girdle them.  But the geese mow the grass and leave droppings behind.  My
husband has very little mowing to do.  And at the end of the season we take
the goslings to the poultry butcher and then have roasted smoked goose for
special occasions.  The soup is great too.  I will put my smoked goose soup
up against any soup made out of any other lawnmower, Lawnboy, Snapper,
Craftsman, whatever.  I also favor having goats (and good fencing).
