Southland-based artisan producer Gathered Game make an authentic traditionally aged product range inspired by European style cured meats. In this episode we talk all things salami with award-winning business founder Chris Thorn, who’s made a success out of his passion for hunting and gathering. Locally sourced from Fiordland and produced in Lumsden, all Gathered Game products are gluten free, dairy free and use natural ingredients: wild venison meat mixed with herbs, spices and a touch of free range NZ pork fat. Gathered Game brings the best of both worlds together, wild New Zealand game and the art of preserving and dry aging organic meat. Chris shares his business startup journey with us in this 20-min chat!
