Photos: Goose and turkey producers convene for annual walk

More than 50 goose and turkey producers attended the annual British Goose Producers farm walk, held at Great Grove Poultry in Norfolk on 15 October.

The event was hosted by Steve Childerhouse, whose family has farmed at Whews Farm near Attleborough since the 1940s.

Mr Childerhouse diversified into geese about 20 years ago, starting with four birds and a sign at the end of the track.

He has since developed a thriving enterprise, with 9,000 turkeys and 800 geese across 50 acres for the Christmas trade.

The emphasis is very much on free-range, keeping production as natural as possible, while minimising the labour input.

Here is a selection of photos from the day:
