Venison loin 500g


Availability: In stock


A full-flavoured loin of organic venison, reared on West Country farms and prepared in our butchery. Tender, succulent and lean, this is a fantastic cut – and very versatile. Sear in a hot pan, finish in the oven, then slice into juicy steaks. Or make a luxurious venison Wellington for a special occasion; good with wilted greens or a watercress salad. Serves 4.

Our organic meat delivery is in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep.

Our venison has a short season - we think that it will be available to buy until about the 9th of November depending on how fast it sells.


Preheat the oven to 220˚C/Gas 7. Season the meat. Heat 2 tbsp oil in an ovenproof pan. Fry the loin for 1-2 mins on each side to brown it. Transfer to the oven for 7-8 mins, for medium. Remove from the oven. It should feel springy to the touch. Rest somewhere warm for 5-10 mins before slicing. Or use the loin to make a venison Wellington.


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.

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.
