    We want to start with geese this year to use as weeders in our orchard. What is a good hatchery for good quality geese? We live in Missouri and don't want to order them from a hatchery that is super far away. I looked at Cackle but they only have 4 varieties and I am leaning towards the American Buff which they don't haveā€¦..

    Thanks,

    I ordered ducklings from Metzer Farms last year and all arrived happy and healthy. While they aren't next door to you I would recommend them and they do have buff geese.

    Meyer hatchery has a good selection and the breed you are looking for.

    For geese I'd really want to order from Holderread Farm or Metzer. I've got buffs on order from Ideal since I was ordering chicks from Ideal and Cackle anyways, I couldn't justify ordering from yet another place--maybe next year.

    Thanks everyone.
    I think I will go with Metzer Farms. They have the Buffs and Sebastopol, which I am slowly falling completely in love with!
    Holderread will probably have the best quality but they don't have the Sebastopol anymore :-(
