Thinking about purchasing a pair, any advice on keeping them from members who has them? Noise level, friendly, food requirements, do i need a pond for them, thanks.

I feed mine regular duck pellets with a little whole corn. They seem to be a little bit timid at feeding time. As for noise I haven't had them during the breeding season, but they don't seem to "talk" very much. I would suggest a pond big enough for them to breed in at the very least.
I keep them in with the other geese, on a natural pond and they are doing very well.

Those are from my phone so they could be worse I guess lol, yes they are pinioned, and The reason they look so small is because in the first pic they are next to a giant gander, and in the second pic the barnacle gander is about 6 ft closer to me up hill. All in all they are a nice size goose, a little bigger then my snow geese.
