The arrival of the Game Season always sends a ripple through the meat industry and the kitchens of Britain’s finest restaurants. From the ‘Glorious 12th August’ through to the end of January, we produce an abundance of the finest game birds, venison, rabbit and hare. ‘Game’ comes in three categories; furred, feathered and fish.
The term ‘Game’ is generally accepted as the generic term for ‘hunted’. Throughout the world, different countries have different rules and ideas on game, often, of course, dependent on which birds or animals are available. In Britain we control our Game carefully and, although land owners have rights on their own land, most game is shot under license.
