Organic venison haunch roast, reared free range on West Country farms and prepared in the Riverford butchery. This fabulously dark, lean joint makes an impressive centrepiece for an autumnal Sunday roast. Enjoy with celeriac mash and braised red cabbage, or mustard-laced mashed potato and buttery Savoy cabbage. Serves 2-3.

Delivered 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 16th of November depending on how fast it sells.

Cooking

Preheat the oven to 220˚C/Gas 7. Heat 2 tbsp of 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 a 500g joint, roast for 10-12 mins for rare to medium-rare. Cover with foil and rest it for 15 mins before carving.

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.

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.
