Every morning, he took a round of the farm. He would pick some vegetables and look at all the animals, give them food and ensure that all his animals were safe and healthy. One morning, as he walked around gathering some eggs, he saw a golden egg laid by one of the geese. 

He picked up the golden egg and ran inside his house to show his wife the egg. The excited farmer said, "Look! One of our geese gave us a golden egg. It is pure gold. We will never have to work again". The farmer's wife took special care of the goose. 

Every morning, they used to come in order to pick up the golden egg. Slowly and steadily the farmer and his wife were becoming richer and richer. They bought new things for the house. But as they became richer, they became greedier as well.

One night, the farmer's wife told the farmer "Why do we wait every morning for an egg? Let us kill the goose and get all the gold at once. She must have a lot of gold in her stomach". The farmer imagined himself having lots and lots of gold and decided to kill her in the morning. 

So, in the morning the farmer and his wife killed the goose and cut her open. The goose had no golden eggs inside her stomach. 

They both were disappointed, now the farmer and his wife had lost the goose and they would never get any golden eggs again. They felt miserable.
