Wild Venison is a great tasting, healthy meat and has a whole host of benefits for you.


Wild Venison is a very lean and healthy meat whilst still giving a great flavour. It has rapidly been gaining in popularity over the last few years with people viewing it as an alternative to red meats and chicken.

Wild Venison is good for you and your heart – providing a welcome alternative for people on a variety of diets, such as low fat, low calorie and low carbohydrate. It offers twice as much iron content as beef or lamb, as well as being a valuable source of essential Omega 3 acids.

Wild Venison has a wonderful flavour that many mass-produced and farmed meats can no longer obtain. In fact many a top celebrity chef is now using more and more venison in their recipes to offer something a little different and exciting to the public.

Antony Worrall-Thompson, chef and broadcaster declares that ‘Game is the ultimate wild and authentic answer to a low calorie, well balanced diet. It’s good for you and it’s good for our countryside.’

Locally sourced

Bluebell Woods Wild Venison comes from woodlands across East Anglia making it a local product for the farmers markets and shows we attend, as well as for our Home Delivery Service.

We are supporters of the buy local campaign organised by Farmers Weekly. The local food is miles better and raises awareness of the vast distances that food will travel before it gets on to your plate. With Bluebell Woods Wild Venison you can guarantee that you’re getting a local, fresh product.


Because Bluebell Woods venison is wild, it is 100% natural and the deer are not given any medication or growth hormones. The Wild Venison comes as a by-product from professionally managed woodlands across East Anglia, and so is a sustainable and natural source.

Mike Robinson, the BBC TV Chef, who is part of the Game’s On national campaign contends that game “is a much underrated and underused food source and the more we can publicise the benefits of eating game, as well as to maintaining a healthier balance to wildlife, the better.”

So don’t be tempted by farmed venison if you want “The Dining Experience”. Look no further, we are confident that you won’t be disappointed!
