Proudly New Zealand local

Family owned and operated for 30 years

Established in 1990 by owners Andy and Vinnie Duncan, we have 30 years of experience supplying the finest venison from free-range deer farms throughout New Zealand. Since Andy first became involved with New Zealand's fledgling Deer Industry in the late 1970's, we have passionately believed that NZ Venison is the best protein option available.

We are proud providers of natural, farm raised NZ Venison, Cervena, Pamu Venison and associated products. The exquisite taste and exceptional nutritional profile, combined with sustainable farming practices on land fit for purpose, makes venison our protein of choice. Our vision has always been to provide outstanding dining experiences, from restaurant tables to backyard barbecues.
