Husband and wife team Steve and Lynn Tricker take the concept of traceability to a new level. Steve can pinpoint exactly where each animal he shoots came from, right down to the Ordnance Survey map reference. Using Lynn’s secret pastry recipe, the pair then turn the meat into award-winning pies, sausage rolls and Scotch eggs.
Steve will help teach a class explaining the importance of game management and how to prepare and cook different types of game. The fur and/or feathers may fly!
