Venison is sustainable on three levels:
- Ethically – You can be guaranteed that the animal your meat has come from has lived a life that is wild and free to roam around doing exactly what it was meant to. It really doesn’t get more free range than this!
- Environmentally – Keeping the environment healthy that suits deer has benefits for all manner of other indigenous species, flora and fauna alike.
- Economically – By eating Game meat you are supporting an important part of the rural community that makes our Great British countryside exactly that – great.
Given that Venison is better for you, cheaper and less damaging for the planet than similar meat, try buying venison.
