Meats from rare and non-commercial livestock breeds have unique traits that offer different flavours, textures and appearances. Gourmet chefs have taken note of these unique characteristics, such as higher fat content, distinct texture and gamey taste, and are promoting the diversity of meats in today’s kitchen. Consumers increasingly seek more variety within the meat sector and are willing to pay a premium for high quality, ethically sourced meats. Scottish small-scale farmers raising rare breeds could benefit from this increasing trend.
