A Double Drop Tine Bull Moose
I was venturing last night. looking at exotic meats, and moose came to mind. I discovered your site. I will buy the book (hardcover, to collect in my cooking library). My question to you, sir, is there anyone who has a moose farm? Down here in Utah, there are people who have elk farms, they raise the Elk..I suppose they are selling them, I never contacted them, because most people (unlike you) don’t do their research and just assume, breed and sell.
I was thinking of doing moose burgers in the future (restaurant) but I haven’t found anything online that shows a bulk sell of meat for this. Have you encounter anyone who sells bulk meat for hamburger/chuck? I am curious.
I was thinking all night...”I’ve got to go to Canada and hunt a moose, bring it to Utah, grind it up and hopefully have enough meat for a certain amount of time...” lol.
I loved the site. Much info from you and tips from others. Keep it going.
In North America moose are not raised on farms for commercial use. As fare as I am aware, there are a few locations (Maine and Alaska) where they are raised for study but that’s it.
In Canada, it is actually illegal to sell wild game meat.
Similar to your area(USA) though we in Canada have farms where elk are farm raised for domestic and foreign markets.
As far as I know, the only place world wide where moose meat is available commercially is in Sweden... they have a lot of moose!
Yup, a moose hunt in Canada or USA (Alaska) would be your best option to get hold of moose meat for burgers, but you wouldn’t be able to supply a restaurant for very long. Small burgers maybe? LOL
Also, a guided moose hunt is quite expensive, I’m not sure you would be able to recover costs if you are really serious about it.
My wife and I are currently collaborating on a Moose Recipe Cookbook. We had a tentative release date of the 22nd of November, but I can see that we will most likely not make that date.
Keep an eye on the site, follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter, there will be an announcement for sure.
Don’t hesitate to contact for more info. And thank you for the koodos!
All the best,
