End of Fallow Season

Mar 15, 2018

We will not have any fallow venison for sale until August. We will continue to sell local wild roe deer through out the summer. Please read on to see why our venison is a natural, seasonal high animal welfare product.

The annual cycle begins for the bucks with antler shedding and new antler growth in April, reaching hard antler by August and velvet is clean by September. The rut is generally in October when mating occurs. Gestation is just over 7 months with the does giving birth to fawns in June and July.

Venison is Seasonal

Our Fallow deer are raised on a low input grass system, during cold winter months grassland is supplemented with hay and locally  sourced feed. Due to the breeding season our fallow venison is only available from 1st August through to early Spring. Out with this period we have local roe venison for sale.

 

Our venison is ethical, welfare friendly, stress free, low food miles, low carbon footprint, processed in their natural environment.
