Venison Mince

Made from premium cuts of venison from deer reared in the wild on Scottish Highland estates. A leaner alternate to beef mince. Careful selection during non-rutting season give the meat a milder flavour than some venison.

CommittmentOur venison is the crown of Mac & Wild. All is sourced through Ardgay Game, Andy Waugh's (Mac & Wild co-founders) family Game Butchery business. The venison we use is 100% wild - born and hunted in the Highland wilderness where often the only time they see a human is the moment they are shot - if even then. It is a truly beautiful product that we are very proud to supply. Our venison is as ethical and sustainable as meat comes. Since the UK removed deer's natural predators (bears and wolves), it is our responsibility to help maintain a healthy population level of deer. This is to ensure the natural ecosystem remains in balance in the areas they roam plus the wellbeing of the deer themselves. When populations rise too high, many beasts perish through the cold Northern winters die to lack of food availability.

If you are looking to eat a more sustainable, ethical and healthy meat, and haven't considered wild venison, you really should. There are no fences, husbandry or transport to slaughter involved in the sourcing of this meat. The animals feed on a completely wild diet of grasses, berries, lichen and heather shoots and we don't hunt during the rutting (mating) season to avoid that strong taste people often associate with venison. This is when many deer are shot for human consumption. The deer come down the hills and congregate making it easy to hunt. However the high levels of hormones present in the animals bodies at that time make for meat with an over pungent flavour. At Mac & Wild (and Ardgay Game) we do not hunt during this season. It sometimes means we are without venison for a few weeks but we think it is important.

The most luscious scrumptious soft as butter steak!

I like steak. And sometimes - like with Mac and Wild 6 week steak, I completely LOVE and ADORE steak. My fave is rare blue steak - and very rarely I eat something so soft as butter scrumptious as what I just got from Mac and wild. Thankyou thankyon Thankyou!

Amazing lamb. Steak full of gristle

Had a deliver with a few amazing racks of land. Delicious. Then next day steak. Very very disappointing. Lots of gristle. Shame.

Two Cote de Boeuf

I ordered two cote de Boeufs and two lamb racks, ordering and delivery was spot on, the first cote de boeuf I cooked and was one of disappointment! It was grisly and chewy with about 20% of it tender. It wasn’t great!
I cooked the second one and the lamb racks for Easter lunch and it was all spot on!
The first steak was less than one star and the rest where 5 stars which is why I’ve given it three! Hopefully the bad one was a one off as I would like to order them again!
