The deer at Bradgate Park are effectively wild animals that, unlike farmed livestock are not tagged, handled or housed for the winter. They receive no routine veterinary treatment or drugs of any kind. As deer have no natural predators and the herds are contained within the boundary wall, their numbers have to be controlled so that they do not outstrip the carrying capacity of the Park. As between 100 and 130 young are born each summer, an equivalent number of animals must be culled in order to maintain the balance. The Estate does not offer commercial deerstalking and all culling is carried out by our own qualified and experienced staff.
As well as being a delicious and versatile meat, venison is low in fat and therefore one of the healthiest of meats to eat. When you buy Bradgate Park venison, you can be sure you are purchasing meat that has been produced from animals that have enjoyed free range extensive grazing on grass that is not treated with artificial fertilisers or chemical sprays.
Bradgate Park venison is available at the Conservatory Tearoom at Newtown Linford. A selection of steaks, diced meat for stews and casseroles and sausages or burgers is available and are individually priced.
We can also supply whole carcasses for retail butchers and caterers as well as the larger home freezer – contact us for details.
