Venison - Wild Wild West Jerky

Venison Jerky

Our Venison Jerky is made from deer that have has been raised on the natural farmlands of New Zealand, without hormones or steroids. It is certified Cervena - the brand name that stands for consistent premium quality from pasture to product.

From 1990 to 2000 venison consumption in North America almost tripled. Not only did the quest for variety and unusual taste sensations drive the demand for venison, but also the emphasis on healthy and natural foods gave it a significant boost. Venison is high in protein, contains iron, zinc and many of the B vitamins, and is raised naturally, without growth hormones, antibiotics and dyes. In addition, venison is very lean - there is no such thing as "marbled" venison. A deer has 5% body fat whereas other domesticated animals have up to 25%. Farm-raised venison is very low in cholesterol.
