Single Whole Wild Wood Pigeon

A sustainable, lean and delicious addition to our range of game!

Unlike our other game birds, Wild Wood Pigeons are not reared for sport. It is, in fact, considered vermin as it is capable of decimating crops, so it is hunted in set numbers out of necessity to protect farming productivity. This makes pigeon arguably the most sustainable of all the meat available to eat in the UK. Wild Wood Pigeons spends a greater amount of time in the air and works its muscles harder than other birds, it is this reason that it resembles the other darker fleshed game like duck and goose. A brace of pigeons can be served with some lovely mushrooms.

*This product may contain lead shot or bone fragments. 

Lead-shot game refers to Pheasant, Partridge, Deer, Goose, Wood Pigeon, Woodcock & Rabbit shot for food using pellets or balls made of lead. Eating lead-shot game meat on a frequent basis can expose you to potentially harmful levels of lead. To minimise your risk of lead intake, if you frequently eat lead-shot game meat, particularly small game, you should cut down your consumption.

Exposure to lead can harm the developing brain and nervous system. So cutting down the amount of lead-shot game eaten is especially important for:

  • pregnant women

Wild Wood Pigeons are shot all year round, with no closed season.  They are hung for a week and the meat becomes tastier and more tender, we have seen to the messy job of prepping and plucking. Cooking Pigeon is relatively simple. So set the crockpot to low, be patient, and enjoy.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.

  • At Coombe Farm Organic we like to work with like-minded organic and/or sustainable producers to bring you delicious produce. As game is not organic we are unable to butcher this ourselves so it is supplied to us already prepped. We work with a South-West supplier to limit the carbon footprint.  

    You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

    Can't Find the Answer?

    If you cannot find the answer to your question and would like to speak to someone contact us and we will be happy to help.

We like to pull the meat from the carcasses, braise and create a mix with some pork mince, smoked bacon, lemon, garlic, tyme and mushrooms. Pop the mixture in a pie dish and cover with puff pastry for the most delicious Pigeon and Pork Pie!
