One pack of ground / minced venison. Each pack contains 300g (11oz) of the finest ground venison cut from either the rump or shoulder. Purely made from the hindquarter of deer - nothing else added and therefore very lean. Nevertheless, ground venison is exceptionally versatile, allowing you to prepare it in various ways. The most popular recipes for venison meat are venison burger, "hunters casserole" and venison bolognese.
Venison, the other red meat. Often found on the menus of upscale restaurants throughout the world. Most folks associate venison with gamey odor and tough meat - that is most likely wild venison. Give our free-range farmed venison a chance, it'll change your concept on venison.
Our premium quality venison comes from deer that is sustainably all-time pasture-raised in small herds on very large pastures run by real family farms of New Zealand. The deers are purely bred for taste. The difference between pasture-raised venison and wild venison is subtle delicate flavor and superb tenderness mostly due to a healthy, low-stress life and a careful selective breeding process. It goes without saying that the animals have never been treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.

Ground Venison Recipe Instructions
I always use it in my dogs food❣️
They love it so much❣️
It is very low fat and is very healthy❣️
I used the venison ground meat to make some ragu for my homemade gnocchi. The results were amazing. I'm not sure I could ever eat ragu from another meat ever again. As for horizon farms their meat and service were both stellar. Thank you again for your support.
Translated from Japanese: I’ve never had venison before and was curious to try it.
It had no smell, it was like ground pork and chicken...
But it’s healthier and richer in protein.
I’d like to buy it again in the future. I hope you will continue to sell it.
This is a privilege to consume and I feel that my body craves this meat. Deer meat, in my opinion, is the most underrated meat available and I am very happy it's supplied by Horizon Farms. I use this to make a Bolognese and add plenty of grass fed butter because this meat is very lean. It tastes incredible and I recommend it to everyone.
Translated from Japanese: It’s very tasty without much odor.
