Most folks associate venison with gamey odor and tough meat - that is most likely wild venison. Give our Mountain River venison a chance, it'll change your concept on venison.
Our Mountain River premium quality venison comes from deer that is sustainably all-time pasture-raised in small herds on very large pastures run by families on the South Island of New Zealand. These venison 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.
Of course, our pasture-raised 100% free-range venison is strictly non-factory farmed. The deer are raised for about 20 months all naturally through summer and winter. Free of antibiotics, growth hormones and any other nasties. Deer feed on grass all their life, during the colder winter and shortages of pasture grass the deer are fed haylage (grasses and legumes) and silage (green foliage crops) and all-natural vitamins and minerals.
