WHOLE PHEASANT

Wrapped in pancetta, UK sourced, hung for 7 days

Meat No Veg supplies pheasants that are fully prepared by our game butchers, ready wrapped in pancetta and individually packed as whole birds. These are sourced from reputable British estates and are superb for special occasions such as dinner parties and family celebrations. Our pheasants are young, tender game birds that have been reared on wild diets and have been hung for at least a week to guarantee the exacting flavour and tenderness of the meat.

Pheasants contain high levels of iron, vitamin B6 and selenium and are low in fat content and low in cholesterol which means eating pheasant offers tangible health benefits.

 

Storage and handling

Fridge: Place in the fridge until required.

Freezer: Freeze on day of purchase, defrost before use.
