    We may call it stew meat, but don’t limit these chunks of venison to the pot. Tender enough for the grill, they are far more versatile than you might imagine.

    Additional Information

    Bring a little game to your next grill out. It's not every stew meat cut that is tender enough to marinate and skewer for grilling, but our venison stands up to the challenge.

    Also a great choice for a game meat pie, these lean cubes are adaptable to many preparations.

    OK, stew fanatics, we hear you. There’s nothing like a slow-cooked stew with savory pieces of meat on a cold winter’s night. Our favorite way to enjoy these low-fat cubes of venison is cooked in a daube, or red wine stew. But venison chili sounds mighty good, too.

    Just the facts

    • Sustainable and humane farming cooperative
    • Grass fed, pasture raised
    • No antibiotics, hormones or steroids

    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.

    This lean stew meat is tender enough to grill on skewers or sear in a pan. But you can keep it traditional with a slow-cooked venison stew or chili. We like to make daube, or red wine stew, with these low-fat cubes of tender venison meat.

    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.
