Wild game is soaring across menus today. Chefs understand the nutritional value and appreciate the sense of adventure and profit potential this category brings to the table.
At Halperns' we take the traditional game offerings to the next level. We actively source unique and specialized items. Many of our suppliers are small boutique farmers and growers who take tremendous pride in their product. We have the largest, most extensive inventory of game meat and game birds available, including many all natural options.
Our Game Product selection includes:
Tanglewood Farms Specialty Birds are raised on small family farms in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. They are subject to stringent growing standards, similar to the Label Rouge program in France, with no hormones, growth stimulants, antibiotics, drugs or any other artificial products administered. They are fed only wholesome natural grains with no animal by-products and the aging process ensures a moist and tender meat. All birds are USDA inspected. They offer fresh Poussin, Pintade, Pheasant and Poulet Rouge Fermier.
Brothers Bill and Rick Thompson produce all natural quail in the Green Mountains of Vermont. They selectively breed the quail to be robust and tender and 25% larger than other quail. This weight is achieved in less than 7 weeks which results in a very tender bird. There are absolutely no growth hormones or stimulants used.
Durham Ranch is the nation's premier brand of fresh, all natural, grain fed, USDA bison. Since bison are wild animals, the meat is naturally leaner. It has less fat and calories and more protein and iron than a comparable portion of beef, chicken, or even some fish. Bison is non-allergenic and is raised naturally without hormones.
Mountain River Natural Tender Venison from the free range pasture of New Zealand is the gourmet meat for a healthy lifestyle. Farmers in New Zealand recognize the need for a naturally produced, lean and delicious red meat; a meat that satisfies the demand for culinary creativity, taste satisfaction and excellent nutrition. Farmers in New Zealand care about what they produce, they farm in harmony with nature, not against.
In addition to the suppliers above, we are proud to feature many other varieties. Included in those are:

From Latin America to the Mediterranean to the Middle East, Goat is not only mainstream but makes up 63% of the red meat consumed worldwide! However, it is just recently that the U.S. has embraced the worlds most popular meat! Goat is popping up on some of America's most high profile menus, such California Michelin-starred 'Osteria Stellina' in Point Reyes and 'Meadowood' in Napa Valley.
In an effort to stay ahead of major trend predictions, Halperns' has partnered with a local goat farm and will be adding 'Caprina' to our 'Southeast Family Farms' boutique line up. 'Triple Diamond Farm' is a third generation goat farm out of Anderson Alabama and raises only USDA PRIME Goats. The animals are harvested at an age to optimize tenderness and flavor. Farmed Goat meat is lean, mild and full of flavor. Also, because it requires very few resources, Goat is considered highly sustainable.
