Next FNOG Field Day – 13 October 2013

Andreas Kurmann from Taipa is kindly hosting the next FNOG Field Day on:

Sunday 13 October.

Some very interesting topics on the agenda, so make a note in your diaries! Further details and directions will be available in the next issue of The Networker (available next week).

Once again, we will greatly appreciate any news or articles you might have to share in The Networker… after all what is a NEWS-letter without any NEWS?



A Goose and the Gossip

Firstly, happy Spring everybody!

Also, it is time to compile the next issue of The Networker. Can you please send any pics, articles, photos or contributions you may have for this issue to me at Especially pics from the last field day at Roel & Liz de Boer’s place if available.

Mark your calendar too, seems the next Field day is scheduled for 13 October – details to follow shortly.


Male Pilgrim Goose for sale or Female Pilgrim Goose wanted to buy
We have a spare, unpaired, male pilgrim goose for sale. He would make a great addition to a flock with spare female pilgrims or Sebastopols. We use geese as part of our orchard management system. They are from an organically managed although uncertified property in the Hokianga. Price $25. He will only be sold to someone who has a mate for him.
Alternatively if anyone does not want to add to their flock but has a spare female they are willing to sell please let us know.
Please contact Gail Aiken for more information

That’s all folks!
