Each product is wrapped then a beautiful gift box and ribbon to house your goodies and a special cold freezer box for cold items used.

We have a wonderful supply of wild venison that has been grazing in woodlands and grasslands, roaming free. Venison is additive and chemical-free, low fat and tremendously healthy. By supporting our venison dishes you are helping control healthy wild deer herds.
Alongside the wild deer, we have the most fabulous game stocks, healthy plump wild Pheasant and Partridge.
