At a time when everyone is talking about boosting the game meat market the Countryside Alliance will honour those businesses that are at the forefront of promoting, processing and selling game to the general public. Only one will be crowned Game Champion but we salute all those who are going the extra mile who are putting this nutritious and delicious meat on people’s plates.
Hadrian’s Game Larder is an exceptional business which showcases the best of Northumberland’s wild game through their delicious products at farmers markets and food fairs across the North East. Silver Sheldon is a true champion of game and her exacting standards means her field to fork ethos only uses the highest quality game and local produce, meaning her business grows year on year.
Lynn and Steve produce award-winning game pies which really are truly traceable. With a field to fork mentality you can track the contents of your pie back to the field the game was sourced from. They are exemplars of how to run a rural business and ambassadors when it comes to encouraging the public to eat more wild game and are changing people’s concept of game meat.
With a strong commitment to the countryside, Daran and Stephen started up Stour Valley Game with the aim of supplying high quality game to the public and to support shoots by providing them with an outlet for their game. The key to their success is maintaining a high standard of game at an affordable price while educating and encouraging the next generation to enjoy game as much as they do.
