Our Company Ethos
Our company ethos is to help others learn about and appreciate the wonders of the natural world whilst at the same time learning about themselves and those around them. We aim to do this in a wholly sustainable and natural way. All of our venison is sourced and culled as part of sustainable deer management plans and all of our courses are run at locations that are enhanced by our bushcraft activities. Underpinning everything that we do is our desire to teach others about how they can get the most of their environment and learn to not only how to survive but also thrive within that environment in a way that is sustainable in the long term.
