Game - the healthy, versatile and sustainable meat
We work with a local game processor to bring you a wide range of game products. The range includes all game birds, venison, rabbit and hare plus boneless game bird meat. Pack options include retail and wholesale / catering packs and are available both fresh and frozen.
Red Deer Venison
Red Deer is sourced from stalking estates in the Highlands of Scotland. Truly wild, they are managed in a sustainable manner and provide the flavoursome meat that is characteristic of wild, Scottish venison.
Fallow Deer Venison
Not as big as a red deer, nor as small as a roe deer, fallow deer venison is a flavoursome, low fat and versatile meat.
Roe Deer Venison
Roe Deer are considerably smaller than Red Deer and have a mild flavour that reflects their woodland diet.
Muntjac is one of the smallest varieties of wild deer and has a delicious, subtle flavour that is milder than red or roe deer.
Available all year round - young rabbit from July to November and bigger, slightly stronger tasting rabbit throughout the winter.
Available from 1st August to 28th February.
Available 12th August to 10th December. Regarded as 'King of Gamebirds', our birds are sourced from the Yorkshire and Northern Dales and their unique flavour reflects their wild moorland habitat. Click on the link for delicious Grouse recipes.
