Embden is one of the oldest breeds of geese, and there is debate as to where they originated. Many experts believe they came from Germany, around the Ems River, but a few others say they came from Denmark.

Regardless of where they originated, they have come to be the most popular breed for meat production. Embdens are the only commercially-raised breed of geese in the United States, because of their quick rate of growth and their heavy weight at maturity.

Embdens are attractive as well, with a long, graceful neck, bright blue eyes, and pure white coloring. It is also the tallest breed. You can usually recognize a purebred Embden from a hybrid by its eye color and height.

The first imports to the United States arrived in Boston, from Bremen, Germany in 1821. Rarely, people will refer to Embdens as "Bremens" for that reason. The breed was listed in the American Poultry Association's Standard of Perfection for the first time in 1874.
