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.

A really bad customer experience

I guess this should be a 0 star rating as the meat order I placed still hasn't been delivered and didn't make it in time for the guests we had planned it for. Shipping was confirmed on 21 July and it is now 26 July. I have emailed but had no response in chasing the order and wasn't given a tracking number. I gust this just comes down to pretty appalling customer service. We were really annoyed on Saturday as having spent more than £70 on this order I had to go out and buy meat locally for a similar sum. Really really poor.

Great quality and delivery speed

Have used Mac & Wild a few times and each time I’ve never been let down. Great quality, delivery speed is fast and extremely well packaged. Suggestion would be to include cooking instructions on website too as handouts can go astray especially if freezing items before using.


Insanely good
