Highland Ridge Larder
Scottish Wild Venison next day delivery across the UK. We ensure that our wild venison is the very best quality. Starting with the stalk, we take great care to ensure that the deer is taken out with one single shot. This way there is no adrenalin flowing through the body and therefore the meat stays tender. The carcass is immediately removed from the hill and loaded on to a chiller trailer where it is hung to bring back to our larder. Here the carcass is hung in a chilled compartment for only 4 to 5 days so there is no strong gamey flavour. It is then butchered and vacuum packed ready for transporting to the customer in chilled and ice packed boxes.
We are delighted to work with our customers to create the exact cut required and if this means hanging a whole carcass or a haunch for longer, then we have the facility to be able to do so.
