August - April I Hampshire & Ayrshire, UK
Synonymous with this time of year, HG Walter are sending us cuts of venison from fallow deer. Never relying on one source, these expert butchers examine each individual animal, shot by from professional gamekeepers across Britain. Both shot and butcher are looking for a middle-sized animal, as at this age their creamy flesh will be covered by a good covering of fat. When the meat is like this, it's a sign that the animal hasn't been stressed or suffering during its lifetime. Any older, and you'd lose the tenderness associated with this incredible game meat.
