Mountain River Venison are a specialist producer of New Zealand Venison, based at Rakaia, mid-Canterbury on the South Island of New Zealand. Operating under the world’s strictest processing hygiene and sanitation standards, Mountain River is able to provide premium venison worldwide all year round.
Deer are free to roam and enjoy a nutrient rich grass fed diet, only supplemented during the colder months with natural feed (hay and silage). As natural foragers and efficient converters of food to fuel, the deer remain lean and healthy without adding fat intra-muscularly. This ensures pasture to plate quality.
Nutritionally, Mountain River Venison is a great alternate to other meats, as it is low in fat, calories, and cholesterol without compromising on taste. High in iron and zinc, it is one of the healthiest red meats available today.
