Pheasant

Pheasant

Seasonal game birds, shot between 1st October and 1st February. Hung for a week the meat becomes tastier and more tender. We have seen to the messy job of prepping and plucking and cooking pheasant is relativley simple. So set the crock pot to low, be patient, and enjoy.


FAQs

  • Game meat is one of the healthiest meats available, it is very low in fat and cholesterol, generally higher in protein, and very lean as wild game are able to walk and roam freely, therefore not storing much fat.

  • Most game is only available during the autumn and winter, during the shooting season, this is followed by the ‘closed season’ when shooting is no longer allowed, this is essential for protecting animals when they are breeding and rearing their young. However, some game does not have a ‘closed season’, these game meats include rabbit and pigeon. At Coombe Farm Organic we freeze our game meat, making it available to you the consumer all year round.

  • Typically, game meat is the flesh of land mammals or birds, that are hunted for food instead of being raised on a farm. Game meat includes, ‘small birds’ such as quail, ‘winged game’ such as woodcock, grouse or partridge, ‘ground game’ such as rabbit or hare and ‘large game’ such as venison.
