PROUDLY LOCAL, WILD, ORGANIC AND SUSTAINABLE
Our booming wild deer population enjoys a free-roaming, stress-free life in the countryside.
Wild venison is a traditional, sustainable and ethical meat with high nutritional value, lower in fat than farmed red meats.
Easy to cook and can replace farmed meats in everyday meals as well as being great for roasting and barbecuing.
Much supermarket venison is farmed in New Zealand, a sea journey of 14,000 miles- seems crazy when we can source it within 15 miles.
If you’re not sure whether you (or yours) will like venison, why not try minced, sausages or burgers first?
I manage some of the thriving wild deer populations here in the beautiful beech woods of the Chiltern Hills.
Beautiful as they are, too many deer are themselves a threat to biodiversity, primarily through overgrazing (groundcover) and overbrowsing (tree/hedge damage)- required for birds, insects and our other mammals.
It's only right and proper that the animal is respected and doesn't go to waste and so for a number of years I've been supplying some of the best local restaurants with their venison.
With recent events, fewer people are eating out and more people are upgrading their repetoire, I'm delighted to also now supply to the public, both via local businesses and direct.
Here's a recent interview I did with Charlie Jacoby for the excellent Fieldsports Channel talking about how Chiltern Venison got started and showcasing one of our brilliant retailers- Peterley Manor Farm Shop.
Great product, ideal for a high protein / low fat diet; perfectly portioned and packaged for the freezer too.
