Get to know our First Light venison farmers.

Good venison comes from young deer that have led a healthy, low stress life, and that’s what we pride ourselves on producing every time.

Until 30 years ago red deer were wild animals. They’re domesticated now, but still need careful handling so we farm them as small herds on large pastures. First Light young, or yearling, venison is delicate, mild flavoured and super tender. Cook it fast and hot, or simmer it low and slow for the afternoon — its healthy, it’s interesting and most importantly its delicious!
