This wild venison fillet proves there’s no easier way to get back to your Paleo roots than eating food direct from nature. It is as close to natural as it gets.
Our wild venison is sourced from estates in Lancashire & Cumbria. It’s highly impractical to let your primal side take over and go hunting yourself these days, so we let the modern day Paleo hunters do it for us – the gamekeepers. These professional people ensure the highest levels of animal welfare at all times, up to and including the shoot. Wild venison is the result of a carefully managed system of land management and sustainability. The deer range free on the estates and live entirely as nature intended. They eat a balanced and healthy diet – the benefit of which is passed down to us in the meat. With a high nutritional value and free from any additives that could be found in intensively reared meat, it is perfect for the primal diet.

The prime cut is the venison fillet we have here. Weighing 500g, three slices with a sharp knife makes four succulent steaks which, cooked pink, are delicious. Or there are plenty of Paleo recipes to be found if you feel like getting creative. Try Jamie Oliver’s pan seared venison with blueberries, shallots and red wine; just get a good organic red to cook with – and maybe finish with the meal!
The venison fillet is a lean meat, has a great omega 6 to omega 3 ratio and is packed with iron and healthy nutrients; it is among the best sources for vitamins B12 and B6 and riboflavin – add a simple green salad to your steak and you’ll have a meal packed with vitamin B. Of course, most importantly, it tastes amazing – rich and flavoursome.
