We’re lucky as the New Zealand climate is ideal for raising deer, allowing us to raise them outside in pastures, eating grass 365 days a year. As well as a noticeable difference in the meat quality, it’s a much more natural way to raise deer, requiring minimal intervention, just as nature intended. It also results in a more sustainably farmed product as our grass-based system optimizes our natural resources and uses low intensity farming practices to minimize environmental impact. 

Our Silver Fern Farms Venison Roasts are naturally lean and healthier than many other meats, with less saturated fat and fewer calories. Compared to pork or lamb, venison is a great option for those looking for a lower-fat, lower-calorie protein source. They also have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a healthier omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, and are higher in antioxidants, vitamins A and E, and conjugated linoleic acids. All of this makes our Venison such a great choice for health-conscious consumers who want a protein option that is both nutritious and full of flavor.

The Venison Roast cut of meat is prepared from the bolar muscle and removed from the shoulder, resulting in a boneless single-muscle roast with that distinctive venison flavor. It's a great option for those looking for an alternative to beef roasts, our Silver Fern Farms Venison Roasts are extremely lean,with no added hormones.  

So, how do you use this cut best? Our Venison Roast can be cooked in a variety of ways, including roasting in the oven or firing up the BBQ to grill. For a medium-rare grilled roast, we recommend cooking it on medium-high heat for 25 minutes. Or in the oven, preheat to 220°C and while that’s heating, sear the roast for 2-3 minutes on each side first to get it nice and golden brown, then transfer to a small roasting dish and cook for around 16 minutes for medium-rare. Either way you cook it, we always recommend covering it with foil to rest for 10 minutes before cutting it and serving. 

Once cooked, this 400 gram roast provides the perfect meal-sized portion for a family of 3-4 people.
