Venison haunch roast 800g

Venison haunch roast 800g


Availability: In stock

An impressive seasonal centrepiece for your Sunday roast. Our venison comes from farms in the Westcountry where organic herds are reared with plenty of grazing space in fields and woods. Prepared by our own team of Riverford butchers to ensure you get quality, lean meat. Serves 4-5.

Our venison has a short season - we think that it will be available to buy until about the 24th of November depending on how fast it sells.


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.

Cooking instructions

Preheat the oven to 220˚C/Gas 7. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a flame and ovenproof pan. Season and brown the meat on all sides. Roast for 15 mins. Lower the heat to 170˚C/Gas 3. For an 800g joint, roast for about 20 mins for rare to medium-rare. Cover with foil and rest it for 15 mins before carving.

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.
