    Anyone use Online Butchers for Unusual Meats?

    Shop Now
    Ive found a couple UK butchers (Online) that supply Unusual & Exzotic Meats but im a bit wary of getting meat shipped...I usally deal directly with a local butcher (But they dont carry the really cool stuff I wanna try )
    Has anyone used any of the following? Were they good? Quality/service etc
    Or any other companys you can recomend?

    Welcome to Alternative Meats Online Shop

    Wild Meat Company - game meat dealers suffolk order wild game meat online - partridge, venison, pheasant, rabbit, duck (They have Squirrel!!!!)

    Welcome to Kezie Foods online Exotic Food store - Kezie Foods (mmmm frog legs & Python......)

    I use a place in Colorado called Grande Natural Meats, website ElkUSA.com
    They have some great stuff, elk, bison, venison, goat, but I'm not sure if they ship to your part of the world. They might.

    I got some kangaroo at an Aussie site (let's see if I can find that again)
    here it is : http://www.marxfoods.com/products/Kangaroo

    Delicious stuff.

    Yup, thats the kind of stuff im looking for but I wouldent order from outside the UK, even if they would ship here it would cost a fortune & could be pretty dodgy getting here fast.

    The ones I posted above were all ones ive found in the UK... so shipping times would be fast & shipping cost arent bad.

    Currently looking up squirrel recipes much to hubbys horror....

    I ordered from Laverstoke Park and it turned up today. It was packaged well and the meat was kept very cold so no issues there. I didn't buy anything adventurous, just nitrate free bacon and preservative/filler free sausages, but i am very impressed with them.

    If they didn't ship well they'd lose their business quickly. So why not give it a shot? I've gotten beef from US Wellness Meats here in the US and they ship quickly and the product is always still frozen and top quality. The only issue I have is the styrofoam coolers. That's a lot of trash I'm generated ordering meat online, and meat already generates way too much landfill waste in my opinion.

    Yeah.. im not so worried about how they ship.. I get my dogs food delivered (all raw/frozen... deys primal doggies )
    More to the quality of the meat itself...
    thats why I was hoping somebody else had used them before & could give me some feedback

    Oh & I checked out the Marx site
    118 for 5kg of Kangaroo mince
    I can get the same here for about 51 (Thats including the currency exchange & shipping charges)

    +1. Have to try kangaroo meat. It doesn't work to well frying it for some reason but it's really good sliced thin and cooked lightly under the grill.

    Really? Do you grow kangaroos in Scottland? I wonder how you get it so cheaply. I have checked out several Aussie sites for 'roo and their prices are all about the same.
