Are you game for Game?

Game-meat is a criminally overlooked alternative to the traditional four (Chicken, beef, pork and lamb) that we eat every day, but the national Game-to-eat month is working to change that. 

Defined as the meat of any wild or semi-wild animal Game-meat is not only low in cholesterol and high in protein, making it healthier than domestic meats, but it’s also more environmentally friendly. As the administrator of Game-to-eat Maxwell Clarke told me, “Game is wild, natural and free-range.”

Game-to-eat month is a national event organised by the Countryside Alliance with the purpose of increasing the popularity of game-meat. They’ve done this by working with family butchers in order to try and increase awareness of game in season and to lower the price of the meat.
