You may have seen in recent press how good game can be as part of a healthy and low-fat diet. While we don’t profess to be dieticians, we do have access to game (specifically pheasant) from now until the end of January.
In an effort to encourage more of you to try pheasant (we think it’s delicious, but it’s not always easy to get hold of) and save on a few food miles, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to come and pick-up free* (yes, free*!) pheasants every Thursday between 3pm & 6pm.
Each week we will also be holding a quick demonstration on how to prepare game at 5.30pm – and will provide recipes for you to take home to try.
Birds in the feather free
