Game is now more ready available than ever before and wherever you live there should be one of the following options within reasonable access:
- Supermarkets – Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose all stock a variety of wild game during the season. But you may also find it in Budgens, Lidl and Booths. And if it isn’t available when the season starts at the end of September be pro-active and ask your local store to kindly stock it.
- High street butchers often sell game from local estates. Your butcher should have a great amount of knowledge so ask his advice if you need to and check the provenance with him.
- Farmers markets are a popular addition to high street shopping and a favourite for local game dealers to sell game.
- Local estates can be a great place to buy game during the season and are often just a short car ride away. So why not make it a fun family outing and stock up with game while you are there.
If it isn’t available when the season starts at the end of September be pro-active and ask your local store to kindly stock it. And when game is out of season, don’t forget it is still available frozen.
