Cotton Patch Geese are a heritage breed used widely during the plantation period to weed cotton and cornfields. As with many examples of heritage breeds, their popularity dwindled with industrialization and modern farming techniques. The breed is now on the endangered list, and part of our breeding program.

Button Farm originally obtained the geese to use in our garden and model plantation, but discovered they were too good at their job and ate out the garden! The geese are now allowed to roam the farm throughout the day. The flock grows every year, with three new goslings added to the family this summer. The white geese are males and the grey “saddlebacks” are female.
