Hand-shaped into luxuriously meaty patties. A great alternative to a beef burger if you saw too many over the summer! We don’t add salt to the mix, as this has been found to break down the meat proteins and ruin the texture; instead, these perfect patties are pure venison, for the tenderest, juiciest mouthful possible.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep. Minimum meat order is just £15 to cover the cost of the packaging.

Our venison has a short season - we estimate it will be available until around the 15th November.

Cooking

These patties don’t contain any seasoning, so sprinkle with salt and pepper generously before cooking, just as you would with a steak. Fry or BBQ on a medium-high heat for 3-4 mins a side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Leave to rest for a few minutes before building your perfect burger.

Storage

Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. If you’re not going to eat it within a day or two, freeze your meat as soon as possible and always within the use by date. Once frozen, use within a month. Use on the day of defrosting.

Sometimes you may notice that your venison looks a little brown. Don’t worry – this is perfectly natural and safe! Red meat contains a protein called myoglobin, which goes brown when it meets oxygen. Venison contains more myoglobin than beef, so it goes brown much faster. It doesn’t mean that the meat isn’t fresh, or affect its flavour at all.

About our venison

All our venison comes from small organic herds reared on Westcountry family farms in Looe and Exmoor. They graze a natural diet of clover-rich grass and wild flowers, roaming the land in natural rutting groups. The result is a tender and very healthy meat, with a milder, less gamey flavour than wild venison. Venison is a healthy meat; lower in fat than skinned chicken breast, higher in iron than any other red meat, low in cholesterol and brimming with Omega-3s.
