Delicious and versatile Whole Wild Rabbit makes an excellent choice.
If you're a little nervous about Game, wild rabbit is a brilliant entry-level option, more delicate than other feather and fur creatures but with a comforting 'chicken-like' flavour and texture that will convert even the most game-shy of cooks.
While a rabbit casserole is a thing of beauty, don't be afraid to expand your culinary repertoire, rabbit can be a lovely ingredient in salads, curries, pies and even bashed out into crispy golden schnitzels.
Wild Rabbit is one of the most ethical and truly sustainable ingredients we can harvest from the land. The wild rabbit population in the UK is a staggering number (estimates are around 40,000,000) and the damage that can be caused to crops, especially to small scale market gardeners, by over abundant rabbit populations, is huge.
Like everything in the countryside, it is all about balance and harmony. Traditionally rabbits were regularly harvested and were a popular nutritious meat. Our love affair with sustainable wild food has been replaced by factory farmed poultry and this has left us with a growing population of wild creatures and the knock on effects from more and more industrialised food systems. We are passionate about putting truly sustainable and ethical wild food back on our nations menus.
All our wild rabbits are harvested locally from farms, estates and National Parks in Devon and either ferreted or head shot which not only is the most ethical way, but greatly improves the quality. We age our rabbits in the fur to bring out the wonderful depth of flavour in the meat and improve the texture. Each wild rabbit is skinned and gutted and then blast frozen to lock in flavour and nutritional value.
Please note Whole Wild Rabbit is delivered to you whole and not butchered into pieces.
