The John Adlard Memorial Sponsorship Scheme....

As a tribute to John Adlard, Norfolk Geese introduced in 2006 an annual Sponsorship Scheme to encourage and support new goose producers and introduce new members to the British Goose Producers.

In December 2005 John was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Award to the Poultry Industry for his meritorious service over many years.

John was a fountain of knowledge and a huge support to all his customers, and we see this Sponsorship Scheme as a fitting tribute to him. He was passionate about the industry and very proud of the strain of goose we produced.

Our aim behind the Sponsorship Scheme is to introduce new members into the goose industry, thereby honouring the generosity of spirit and passion that John always showed.

As John would have wished, Norfolk Geese is continuing to provide rearing and feeding recommendations, a seven-day-a-week contact for any queries and an introduction to other members in the local area.

In addition, the scheme will provide each year, sponsorship for one of the newcomers which will include: The first 20 goslings free of charge A site visit between September and December (within reasonable distance) Recommendations for presentation of the final product including advice on plucking, processing, boxing and marketing.
