Our venison veal leg is characterised by a wonderfully tender texture and convinces with a fine gamey aroma. Compared to venison, the meat is much finer and less intense in flavour.
It is ideal for stewing and braising and develops its full aroma here. Next to poultry, venison is considered the healthiest and most natural type of meat. This is mainly due to the low fat content and the high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
What makes our venison leg so special?
At Fitmeat, we place the highest value on fine cuts of meat. Our high-quality venison comes exclusively from wild animals that live in the wild and have been shot by experienced hunters in Salzburg and the Königsbrunn region of Lower Austria.
Since Fitmeat places the highest priority on perfect quality and respectful treatment of animals, we strictly distance ourselves from game from creel hunting. Any rushing or driving of the animals represents a high loss of quality and is strictly rejected by us and our hunters.
Instead, we take a mindful approach that does not cause any stress to the wild animals and thus ensures a high meat quality and fine texture.
What distinguishes our game from others?
After a successful hunt, the game is taken to a selected butcher where it undergoes another veterinary examination before the meat is matured.
Only then is the game processed into genuine game specialities by master butcher Martin Böck in Rastenfeld with a trained eye and a careful hand. In addition to the classic cuts such as backs, legs or ragout, specialities such as venison burger patties are also produced.
Hunters and butchers work hand in hand to guarantee the best possible game quality. This includes, among other things, an exact shot, a close cooling chamber and the professional and flawless processing of the venison.

Herkunft und Haltung
The Waldviertel and Königsbrunn region in Lower Austria, with its large forest and meadow areas and low population density, is the ideal home for the wildlife that lives here.
Rivers and streams provide good irrigation for the area. This allows grasses and flowers to grow, providing prime fodder for the animals. Careful hunters and foresters manage these areas with great dedication.
The hunted animals are brought to the nearby game chamber, inspected by the official veterinarian and respectfully processed by our master butcher.
