WHY WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT A WILD MEAT DIET
We’re keen to encourage more people to enjoy the flavour, nutritional and environmental benefits of wild game. Why you may ask. Well, two reasons really, it’s good for you and its good for the environment.
GOOD FOR YOU. Wild animals are lean animals. The reason they are leaner is due to their active lifestyle. They roam freely in nature and eat a varied natural and nutritious diet.
Wild venison, for example, is lower in fat than skinless chicken (The total saturated fat component of venison is less 1/3 of beef and lamb). It is higher in iron and protein than beef and lamb, and is considered to be one of the best dietary sources of iron, and a complete protein as it contains all 10 of the essential amino acids. It is a great source of vitamin B2, B3, B6 and B12, and has been shown to wild venison have an ideal ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids.
GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. Harvesting wild animals offers protection for our native environments and countrysides. It keeps animal numbers in check and minimises the damage caused by their selective eating patterns. Wild deer have no natural predators and wild rabbits (according to MPI) ‘have been a constant source of trouble for New Zealand since they were first introduced in the 1830s’ !
By choosing wild game you also reduce your carbon footprint and ease reliance on industrial scale farming.
Eating wild game is not only a highly nutritious flavourful experience, it is an eco-friendly and sustainable source of food.
