£4.85

Organic West Country venison prepared in our butchery. Venison is a lean, healthy red meat – and these great value cuts from the neck and shin, with the bone still in, are just the thing for stews. Coming from a harder working part of the animal, they need a longer cooking time - but the rich extra flavour and beautifully tender meat are well worth the wait.

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

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.

Cooking

Treat it like braising steak: season and brown in a hot pan, then braise in wine, stock or beer for about 1½-2 hours until tender. Serve with mashed potatoes and seasonal veg.

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.
