If you think that you do not like venison, you may be surprised by our the meat from our wild roe deer. Roe venison is very tender, and so does not need long hanging and does not have a strong "gamey" taste. It is very lean, perfect for a low fat New Year treat. Some recipes recommend marinading venison: don't! Fry steaks quickly over a high heat, roast joints quickly in a hot oven, and serve fairly pink.
The deer population in Britain is higher now than at any time since the last Ice Age. Over-browsing by deer is one of the greatest ecological threats to many of our woodlands. Our stalkers did very well over the Christmas break, so we have lots of venison in the shop. Come and do your bit to control deer numbers!
