Venison loin is arguably the finest meat you can buy, with the texture and tenderness of fillet steak and a better flavour. It is gamey without being too strong. Venison loin is ideal as a pan fried steak (the flavour holds up well with marinades) or as a wellington with wild mushrooms. Best prepared rare to medium rare.
Our loins come from wild Fallow Deer and are about 1kg in weight, which makes them the ideal size for a Wellington. We can cut them into individual steaks if you would like.
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.
