Wild or Farmed ?
We offer wild and farmed venison depending upon the time of year.
Venison escalop is taken from the round cuts on the hind of the animal, there is little natural fat.
The quality of Wild venison can vary significantly, this is because the 'shooter' kills whatever walks into his sights. He will rarely have an opportunity to select the target and consequently age is difficult to determine. For that reason wild venison really needs to be marinaded and cooked well.
Farmed venison is grown to optimum size and condition. It is fed a regular diet and the carcases produced are consistent. The meat is generally tender and requires less effort to cook. As a general rule all venison is Free to Range and is never intensively reared.
