Cut from the hind leg, venison 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. As free-range as it gets without being wild, our grass-fed venison comes from New Zealand ranches that practice sustainable methods, raising red deer entirely on tall-grass pastures with no added antibiotics or growth stimulants. Our venison is a superior-quality lean red meat that offers great taste, tender texture, and health benefits - and never that gamey flavor that often comes with hunted meat. The medallion is a versatile cut, perfect when pan-seared, roasted, or grilled. Just remember, with no fat to protect it from the heat, venison is best when served rare to medium-rare. Cook with care. Enjoy with abandon.

As free-range as it gets without being wild, our venison comes from a group of New Zealand ranchers who allow the Red deer to roam and feed on tall-grass pastures in a pristine environment, in accordance with the strict standards required by the Cervena name.
Cervena is a quality assurance program that certifies that all the venison with their label has been humanely pasture-raised, and 100% grass-fed with only minimal supplemental feed such as hay. Only in cases of extreme disease will antibiotics be administered, and then the animal is tracked and processed separately.
Cervena also requires that animals be less than three years of age at the time of processing, which takes place only at accredited facilities expert in processing deer, and specifically licensed and regularly audited by an independent agency.
