Also known as the French Partridge, the taste and texture of the red partridge meat is similar to chicken, but with a stronger, more gamey taste. We only supply young birds for the most tender eating and the birds are hung for a few days, so the meat is pale and full of flavour, without being too gamey.
Available fresh during the shooting season (September - January) only, please allow extra 24h for delivery when ordering. Please be aware that the meat may contain shot.
The Red-legged Partridge originates from southern Europe and is slightly larger than our native grey Partridge, but still only half the size of a pheasant.
Partridges are best cooked simply, ours are supplied fresh and oven ready. Usual weight 8-10oz per prepared bird. One bird can feed 1-2 persons.
Your meat order is kept cool in transit because we either use an
insulated expanded polystyrene box, or a recyclable tough corrugated
cardboard box which is foil lined and insulated with bubble wrap. Both
boxes are leak-proof and sturdy.
To keep your delivery cool, it is packed along with specially designed
ice packs. Our ice packs are made with a frozen water-based gel, which
keeps the meat at the correct temperature for up to 48 hours. When the
ice does melt, it stays as a gel, which prevents the delivery becoming
