About Us

Quality Game Meat

Fare Game is an owner-operated supplier of top quality free-range game meats. Callum Hughes and the team supply wholesale meat to chefs and restaurants New Zealand wide from the bottom of the South Island to the top of the North Island and everywhere in between.

We now deliver our restaurant quality meat straight to your home, anywhere in New Zealand. 

Venison from Fare Game is simply the best you can get. We source most of our wild venison from the Fiordland mountains where lush vegetation, the freshest of water and the cleanest of mountain air is all that goes into your meat; no additives, hormones, or other man-made concoctions here!

Onwards and Upwards

From small beginnings the company now employs eight staff at its processing site in Invercargill and has contract hunters throughout Southland, Fiordland, and Central Otago.

Callum Hughes - the man behind Fare Game

While many of us dream of turning our favourite pastime into a full time profession, Fare Game owner operator Callum Hughes has done just that.

Instilled with a love of hunting after many excursions around Southland and beyond with his father as a lad, Callum is ideally suited to his role. The successful Fare Game business originated around a campfire with a few friends and family, one cold night while hunting in Fiordland in 2005.

Callum now delivers some of the best game meat New Zealand has to offer.

Full Process Management

All products supplied by Fare Game hunters are processed in their own purpose built export standard processing facility in the heart of Southland. This facility is operated under a Risk Management Plan registered with The Ministry of Primary Industries.

Fare Game has a small dedicated team of professional hunters situated in Southland and Central Otago. With the use of chilled transport they are able to supply the processing facility with high quality premium game 12 months of the year.

Fare Game operates its own fleet of trucks and licensed game depots that ensure Fare Game has control of the products ASAP after harvesting all the way through to dispatch to you. This means that not only is this product fully traceable but also gives Fare Game the flexibility to supply any cuts at anytime with quality guaranteed.
