About Us

For the past 29 years Woodmill Game - formerly known as The Game Cart - has had a fundamental focus on bringing more game to people’s plates.  In 2019 we rebranded with a fresh, innovative approach to getting game out there, pulling inspiration from our favourite family recipes and ideas.

"The secret is in the sourcing"

All our game is 100% wild (never farmed), sourced through our own family deer stalking and game bird processing businesses. This allows us to constantly explore and develop ways to bring exciting and innovative products to our growing base of game fans.

Our Team

We’ve got the very best butchers, pluckers, deer stalkers, flavour innovators, market sellers and sustainable thinkers in Scotland and we’re extremely proud to call them Our Team.

Our talented experts allow us to be involved at every point in the lifecycle of our Game. From Hill to Fork, we know exactly where your food has come from, how it’s been prepped and packaged and how it will look when you open your bags & boxes of goodies at home. With such a knowledgeable and hands on professionals with us, we can be fully confident that you are getting the very best that Scottish Wild Game has to offer when you shop with us.

 

Steven Wade

Steven Wade, Director

Steven set up a small pheasant plucking business in 1992, pioneering the concept of oven-ready birds as a take-home for guns rather than a brace on the feather.  The business now processes some 40,000 birds a season, a high percentage of which are turned into a range of tasty and innovative foods including game sausages, burgers, terrines, salamis and pies. Steven has come to be recognised as an expert in the processing and cooking of game as well as a highly accomplished deer stalker and his fascination and vision for the potential for game is as strong as ever.
