Winners of goose entrant sponsorship

Norfolk farmers, Martin and Rosemary Jensen, are the 2007 winners of the John Adlard Memorial Sponsorship aimed at helping get new entrants to goose production off to a flying start.

Their success was announced at the annual farm walk of British Goose Producers, hosted by Norfolk Geese which instigated the award last year in memory of the group's founder chairman John Adlard.

Arable farmers at Guestwick, the Jensens are this year producing 75 geese and looking to sell them to local hotels and restaurants as well as farmgate customers. With their daughter studying agriculture at the Royal Agricultural College at Cirencester, the geese are one part of their diversifying enterprises that include borage, haylage and sheep production.
