And on this week’s show!

Firstly, as with all shows we’ve done on food – I’m not here to tell you what to eat. I’ll leave that to the doctors to guide you through, but what I am passionate about, is guiding big picture, grey area thinking in this polarised world trying to oversimplify things in black and white narratives which we all end up fighting each other over. No thanks. Not productive and I truly believe there’s room for every type of eater to do better for their health and our planet and animals – whether you eat animals or not. To that end, this week we’re talking about the impact of wild animals on the landscape – both the wild, native landscape and the farms where food is grown and ask: Could this be the most ethical, environmental meat solution yet? During the pandemic, Billy Staughton & Tara Medina (Discovered Wildfoods) launched their brand of wild-harvested Sambar venison. Coming from diverse backgrounds in events, music festivals, bars, management consulting and even stints as a jackeroo, a wild game near business seemed the logical next step. It posed many challenges but after years of getting the supply chain right, they’ve not only found a solution to help restore pristine native habitats being threatened by invasive wild game but deliver an ethically harvested, incredibly nutritious meat to Australians. 


Questions I asked:

  • How did you come to start this business?
  • What makes wild harvested meat ethical?
  • What makes Australian wild game sustainable?
  • How do you establish the carbon footprint of wild game?
  • What’s the easiest way for people to get started eating more wild foods?

About

During the pandemic, and while the restaurant sector was in the throes of lockdown, Billy Staughton & Tara Medina (Discovered Wildfoods) launched their brand of wild-harvested Sambar venison. Coming from diverse backgrounds in events, music festivals, bars, management consulting, and even stints as a jackeroo, a wild game near business seemed the logical next step. It posed many challenges but after years of getting the supply chain right, they’ve not only found a solution to help restore pristine native habitats being threatened by invasive wild game but deliver an ethically harvested meat to the foodservice market too.
