The Siberian ALTAI goose is traditionally kept in a
smallholder farming structure. The ALTAI region is a mountain range which
reaches 4500m at its peak and is located on the border of Siberia and
Kazakhstan. A special feature is that these geese often freely roam in the farm
area and pick out tasty titbits from the meadows and ears of wheat. European
and eastern European geese are mainly held in professional housing systems and
slaughtered after 3-4 months. Siberian geese ( - known as snow geese by the farmers
in this region - ) live much longer - often these free-range geese live the
full period from spring through to the end of winter in February/March. The
Siberian Altai goose can develop slowly and naturally in this rearing process.
The down and feather of the bird is therefore also significantly more mature,
fluffier and more durable than factory farmed geese. This sustainability in
farming is not necessarily in harmony with the pursuit of profit - but conforms
with the Russian tradition and, of course, does not allow for mass production!
