Diced Venison can be used as a healthy alternative to beef, with a slightly gamey flavour. It is delicious in stews, casseroles and pies and is low in fat and cholesterol. It works well with herbs and wine, offset with redcurrant jelly.
All of our venison comes from the Stansted Estate. Fallow and Roe deer provide a year-round supply, although the Roe are elusive in July when the crops and bracken are high! They are completely wild, the Fallow deer migrate through the estate depending on what they are feeding on, while the Roe are territorial and tend to stay in the same areas. They are culled as part of the forestry management that ensures a healthy balance of deer numbers while allowing saplings and woodland plants to thrive.
