wholesome game meat - Our focus

With the growing trend of keeping game animals on smaller properties there is also the increased risk that certain parasites and diseases normally only associated with domestic livestock could spread to game animals. Therefore, it is very important to inspect game meat to ensure that it is safe for human consumption.
