Venison is a very lean meat, low in both cholesterol and fat, but high in omega oils, minerals and vitamins.

All our venison is wild not farmed, which we sustainably harvest ourselves on local estates and farms in the Test Valley.

Wild deer are not exposed to any anti-biotics, hormones and other medical treatments, as they roam free and feed on arable crops and a wide variety of herbs, plants, weeds, tree buds and brambles.  This wild venison its healthy and distinctive taste.

Our venison sausages and burgers are prime venison (plus pork in the sausages), plus only water, herbs and seasonings.  All the venison is culled, inspected, butchered and processed by us so we can control full food traceability and product quality.

We are proud to operate on a “field to fork” basis within a 20 miles radius, so our local customers know the providence of their venison and our activities benefit the wider local farming community and economy.

Locally there are three wild deer species, the most numerous species being the fallow deer.  These are a herding deer so can often be seen grazing in groups on crops near woodland.  Fallow travel extensively across the local landscape depending on the farm crops, returning to the safety of woodland after feeding.

Roe deer are territorial, establishing themselves in a particular area that will provide safety and food.  Roe are predominately a browsing deer, eating weeds, trees, plants and buds but will also eat farm crops.

Muntjac are a small invasive species of deer that are woodland browse specialists.  This causes significant damage to wild flowers and tree saplings, plus their high reproductive rates can result in large local numbers.

Overall UK deer numbers are at an all time high and with no natural predators, this is becoming problematic.  Aside from farming and forestry interests, the increasing amount of deer in the countryside and now in urban areas continues to cause more road traffic accidents.
