Our Meat & It's Story
Wild Scottish deer live off nature’s organic garden; the Scottish lichen, heathers and mosses are what give it its unique flavoursome taste. We call it a happy meat. It’s not bred to be transported; it lives off its natural environment, roaming free in the Scottish Highlands. This freedom is what makes the meat ultimately so clean and pure.
Deer are synonymous with the Highlands, they’ve been a natural food source here for centuries. They have a significant ecological role as the largest undomesticated grazers. To keep the population healthy, and the number of deer in balance with their habitat, the Estates we work with manage these populations to provide this iconic meat.
