The company was established by Sandra and Louis Baxter in 1983. The business expanded gradually over time, changing from a simple in-feather dealer processing for local restaurants, to processing for wholesalers and a wider market. In 1999 Yorkshire Game acquired the business and venison expertise of Richard Townsend. In April 2003 we moved into a brand new, custom-built EC licensed plant beside the A1 motorway, at Brompton-on-Swale, in North Yorkshire, England, with a permanent staff of 20. The Baxters retired in 2005 and Richard Townsend took over from Sandy as MD. The demand for game has been strong and we now a full-time staff of 30 with an extra 30 temporary staff during the season.
