About the cut

Whole Mallard

These birds are sourced primarily from the Yorkshire valleys of Wharfedale, Nidderdale, and Wensleydale. Game was once a key part of the butcher's business with wild ducks a common part of the country diet. These birds are carefully de feathered and the innards removed before being dispatched fresh. Be sure to have a quick look for shot before cooking, in the unlikely chance it was missed.
