Our booming wild deer population enjoys a free-roaming, stress-free life in the countryside, resulting in some of the healthiest and leanest meat available. Wild venison is not only delicious but also incredibly versatile, making it an excellent choice for a variety of dishes. Whether you're cooking a joint, steaks, diced meat for stews and casseroles, or minced venison as a substitute for beef, lamb, or pork, venison offers a flavourful and nutritious alternative.

The Benefits of Venison

1. Versatility in Cooking Many people shy away from cooking venison, believing it to be challenging or expensive. However, venison can be prepared similarly to other meats, particularly lamb. For the tougher cuts like the neck and shoulders, slow cooking is ideal. For the more tender cuts like the haunches and loin, hot and fast cooking methods work best.

2. Nutritional Powerhouse Venison is one of the leanest meats, high in protein and low in fat, making it a great choice for health-conscious individuals. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals, such as B vitamins, iron, and zinc, which are essential for maintaining good health.

3. Sustainable Choice Our venison comes from  all responsibly sourced from Ben Rigby Game - England's premier game dealer. These deer live totally wild, stress-free lives and are never exposed to steroids or antibiotics. Choosing wild venison supports sustainable hunting practices and contributes to ecological balance.

Cooking Tips and Recipe Ideas

1. Cooking Methods

  • Slow Cooking: Ideal for tougher cuts like the neck and shoulders. Slow cooking breaks down the muscle fibbers, resulting in tender, flavourful meat perfect for stews and casseroles.
  • Hot and Fast Cooking: Best for tender cuts like the haunches and loin. These cuts can be seared, grilled, or roasted at high temperatures to preserve their tenderness and flavour.

2. Recipe Suggestions

  • Weekday Kitchen Supper: Try a simple venison stew with root vegetables and herbs for a hearty, nutritious meal. Shop : Diced Venison 
  • "Wow" Dishes: Impress your guests with a venison roast served with a rich red wine sauce and seasonal vegetables. Shop : Roasting Venison joints
