Our venison sausages are handmade by our butcher, Lee, in the Farm Shop. Venison is one of the most delicious meats, with the deer’s varied diet giving the meat fantastic flavour. As the deer are wild they are particularly lean, meaning that many regard venison as the healthiest of all red meat. These sausages are delicious, meaty and with a true taste of wild venison. In the summer we sometimes add redcurrant to the sausages, or cranberry in the winter. If you’d like to know more about why we should be eating wild venison, take a look at our blog, here.
Each pack contains six sausages (approx 400g).
All of our venison comes from local estates. 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.
