Scotland’s Natural Larder (SNL) has been given a grant of £11,000 by the Community Food Fund to attend a series of farmers’ markets across Scotland.
The SNL project, a partnership between the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) Scottish Natural Heritage, will attend the farmers’ markets to promote game meat, with a series of demonstrations and taste tests for visitors. The tour will include markets in St Andrews, Perth, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh, throughout the winter. The exact dates will be published on the SNL website closer to the time.
Nicolle Hamilton of BASC said: “Game is a seasonal, tasty and truly wild meat that is widely available over the winter months. There is significant scope to add value to this natural resource by demonstrating skills and giving confidence to consumers in the best practice preparation and use of game meat. This funding provides us with a unique opportunity to raise the profile of game meat in the Year of Food and Drink and give people the chance to try something new.”
