The real price of game



Hi all,

Since eating a more conscious, ethically kind, diet I have met many people - including my partner - who ask the question but what about game? What about meat that isn't deliberately reared to be eaten?

When I am asked this question it is clear that the person doing the talking has this fantastical idea about woods, meadows, and moors naturally full of deer, grouse, partridge and the like all happily living out their lives without a care in the world enjoying their habitats as nature intended.
