    If you are looking for big taste in a lean package, the medallion of venison is the cut for you. The tender red meat offers health benefits as well, making it a great option for a weeknight dinner or a weekend grill fest.

    Additional Information

    The medallion is a beautiful portion of tender red meat; you won’t see a single streak of fat in it. We love venison because it packs a lot of flavor and nutrients, but few calories. And our farm-raised venison doesn’t have that gamey flavor you might associate with hunted meat.

    This medallion is a versatile cut, perfect when pan-fried, roasted or grilled. Just remember, with no fat to protect it from the heat, it is best when served rare to medium rare.

    Cook with care. Enjoy with abandon.

    For our venison, we trust a cooperative of ranchers in New Zealand who raise Red deer according to the strict standards required by the Cervena name.

    Cervena is a trademarked appellation which certifies that all the venison in their cooperative has been humanely pasture-raised and 100% grass-fed with only minimal supplemental feed such as hay. The pristine pastures of New Zealand offer conditions that are essentially wild, but in which the ranchers can still monitor and protect the deer.

    Another reason we respect the cooperative is that they reject the use of steroids, growth hormones and antibiotics. Only in cases of extreme disease will antibiotics be administered, and then the animal is tracked and not allowed to be processed.

    Cervena also requires that animals be less than three years of age at the time of processing, and that processing take place at accredited facilities that are specifically licensed and regularly audited by an independent agency.

    All of this focused care brings out the best in the venison; it is lean, consistently tender, deep red and full of sweet flavor.

    Naturally low in calories and fat, yet packed with nutrients like iron, zinc and B vitamins, Cervena venison is a high-quality protein and one of the healthiest red meats available today. According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, venison has about 20% less fat and about 100 fewer calories per 3.5 ounce serving than beef. It's the ideal meat to include as part of a healthy and balanced diet.

    The medallion is a versatile cut, perfect when pan-fried, roasted or grilled. Lean and dark red, venison is a super-healthy meat that should be cooked with care. With no fat to protect it from the heat, it is best when served rare to medium rare.

    Our Venison

    As free-range as it gets without being wild, our venison comes from a certified cooperative in New Zealand where the deer roam and feed on tall-grass pastures in a pristine environment. With no added antibiotics or growth stimulants, this superior quality meat offers great taste, texture and health benefits.
