WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result. 

WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE GAME?​

It’s no secret that despite living a free-range life, game is reared primarily for sport. In the west country, we are surrounded by estates that do this and in doing so manage the eco systems that support a bounty of flora and fauna in the area. Our game is harvested by people licensed to do so and only during ‘designated’ seasons.

Ingredients

  • 10 woodpigeon breasts, sliced thin
  • 600g “straight to wok” medium noodles
  • 150g red cabbage, grated
  • 150g beansprouts
  • 100g mangetout
  • 100ml light Soy Sauce
  • 4 spring onions, sliced thin
  • 3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 3 large carrots, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 red chillies, sliced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • sesame seeds/chilli flakes (optional garnish)

Method

  1. Slice the wood pigeon breasts lengthways then place them in glass bowl or casserole dish and smother with soy sauce, ginger and brown sugar. Combine the ingredients together to ensure an even coat then cover with clingfilm and marinade for an hour in the fridge.
  2. Cut the pepper in half and slice into thin strips and place to one side. Meanwhile prepare your vegetables for the stir fry and transfer them to a bowl (by all means use a pre-made stir fry pack for convenience).
  3. Place your wok or large frying pan over a high heat and get it smoking hot. Add the sesame oil and peppers to the pan, let them soften for a couple of minutes. Next add the garlic and move it around quickly so it doesn’t burn. Transfer the marinated pigeon breasts to the wok and cook hot and fast for around 1 minute. Add the stir-fry mix to the wok/pan, followed by the noodles and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir through the chilli sauce, adding as much or as little as you like.
  5. Garnish with sliced spring onion and sesame seeds (optional), serve hot.

Frequently asked questions

  • Typically, game meat is the flesh of land mammals or birds, that are hunted for food instead of being raised on a farm. Game meat includes, ‘small birds’ such as quail, ‘winged game’ such as woodcock, grouse or partridge, ‘ground game’ such as rabbit or hare and ‘large game’ such as venison.

  • Most game is only available during the autumn and winter, during the shooting season, this is followed by the ‘closed season’ when shooting is no longer allowed, this is essential for protecting animals when they are breeding and rearing their young. However, some game does not have a ‘closed season’, these game meats include rabbit and pigeon. At Coombe Farm Organic we freeze our game meat, making it available to you the consumer all year round.

  • Game meat is one of the healthiest meats available, it is very low in fat and cholesterol, generally higher in protein, and very lean as wild game are able to walk and roam freely, therefore not storing much fat.
