Maplewood Farm’s ancient goose


Did you know that Maplewood Farm on the North Shore has a goose that’s 31 years old? THIRTY ONE YEARS OLD. I had no idea geese could live to such an age but it’s true. Her name is Gussie, she was born in 1980, she walks with a bit of a gangster limp and you should go out and visit her one of these days.

That is all.
