Thread: Do you barter your venison?

  1. #1

    Do you barter your venison?

    I was just talking to someone at work who rears her own lamb, pigs, cows and turkeys and we are coming to an arrangement to do a swap; a munty carcass or 2 for some lamb and a turkey crown for xmas.

    I will obviously follow the same procedure as though it was for my own consumption, but if you barter your venison do you also tag and record it before giving it away the same as going to a dealer or do you butcher it before swapping? And if you do barter out of interest what sort of deals do you do?

    I'm finding that more and more people are bartering stuff, from chutneys, jams and veg off allotments, etc to game these days around here. In her words, which struck a cord, "I can't afford the price of venison on the shelf in the shops and if I could I wouldn't pay for farmed stuff from NZ!!"

    Seems the old ways are coming back more and more, I wonder why?!!

    Cheers

    An see gent is teaching me the ways of cod fishing fae the shore in winter .... I have bout the best cod shore fishing ground on my door step , he can pull cod oot o a puddle !!!!
    So invariably I get cod when I've been unsuccessful & he gets venison burgers & mince , other bits n bobs
    He can deal with non. Butchered also but usually it's "processed" my end
    I found the bartering arrangement quite refreshing & would do more of it if others had something to barter

    Just spoke to the Mrs and I never realised how out of touch with the price of things I am!! 20 - 25 for a turkey crown!!!! Looks like that'll be a good trade for the cost of 1 PPU .308 round!!

    Hi there

    Some years ago I used to swap venison for wild Brown Trout. It used to be on a lb for lb basis. We both thought we had a great deal as neither of us could get the others produce. Good times.

    That's a good way mate I reckon lb for lb vension would be equal to home reared turkey, lamb, pork, etc, don't you?

    I used to supply a few old folk in the village with rabbits and a bit of game, in return I got veg from their allotments.

    "Avoid paying tax". "Evade paying tax" I can see, but "avoid"? How can bartering let you do that?.

    Avoid = ok
    Evade = not ok

    Stratts buys turkey crown...he pays vat
    Lady buys venison...she pays vat
    They barter...neither pays vat.

    I think most food is vat free.
