The Game Farmers' Association

....representing the UK's game farmers & promoting high standards

Welcome to The Game

Farmers'

Association

The Game Farmers' Association (GFA) is a trade organisation dedicated to the production of quality gamebirds for the UK shooting industry.

Many shoots in Britain rely on

hand-reared gamebirds, released into the countryside during the summer to supplement the wild stocks before the winter shooting season begins. Good game farming ensures that these birds, mostly pheasant and partridge, are strong, fit and ready for the natural environment in which they will live.

 

Most game farmers in Britain are members of the GFA and the Association represents their interests, as well as encouraging everyone who rears game to follow high standards.

 

 

Some of our most important work has been to secure near-identical yet practical Game Rearing Codes for England, Scotland and Wales. These ensure that game farming is officially recognised by Government and is always carried out to a high welfare standard, backed by the force

of law.
