A Forking Good Idea

As a traditional farming family, we are no strangers to hard work. We run a successful beef and sheep farming business and as the demand for farmed venison continued to grow, we decided to turn our attention to venison farming.

We launched the Downfield abattoir due to a lack of Venison processing plants in the UK. So we converted an old farm shed into our very own state of the art processing plant. Stagison Venison produce was born!

Delicious Venison

Herding a New Era

On that fateful day, we entered into a new and exciting growing market. Here we hope to challenge and change the perception of venison farming in Scotland for the better.

What’s more, all our hard work is paying off. We have a well-earned reputation for excellence in animal nutrition, care and processing in the industry. We are also working hard with local farmers and suppliers to encourage the growth of venison farming in Scotland. This in turn will help in the growth of our economy, by supplying quality venison products to the rest of the UK (and who knows, maybe one day to the rest of the world).

Try A Venison Steak Pie This Hogmanay

Who has heard of having a venison steak pie at Hogmanay? A Scottish Hogmanay can be one of a few things. Some take to the streets and party with wild abandon waiting for the bells. Others enjoy smaller gatherings in the homes of friends and family, watching Jackie Bird dance to Phil & Aly on the telly. Some, of course, head to bed at 9pm and wake up when all the chaos is over with for another year.
