Meat knowledge

Our venison leg has a wonderfully tender texture and a fine gamey flavour. Compared to venison, the meat is much finer and less intense in flavour.

It is ideal for braising and stewing, where it can develop its full flavour. Next to poultry, venison is considered the healthiest and most natural meat. This is mainly due to its low fat content and high levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

What makes our haunch of venison so special?

At Fitmeat we place the highest value on fine cuts of meat. Our high quality venison comes exclusively from wild animals shot by experienced hunters in Salzburg and the region of Königsbrunn in Lower Austria.

As Fitmeat places the highest priority on perfect quality and respectful treatment of animals, we strictly refrain from creel hunting. Any kind of rushing or driving of the animals is a major loss of quality and is strictly rejected by us and our hunters.

Instead, we use a gentle approach that does not stress the wild animals and thus ensures high meat quality and a fine texture.

What makes our game different?

After a successful hunt, the game is taken to a selected butcher, where it undergoes a further 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 careful hand. In addition to the classic cuts such as back, leg 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 a precise shot, an enclosed chilling chamber and the professional and flawless processing of the game.

What goes with it?
Garnishes and spices for the leg of venison

Whether stewed, braised or roasted, leg of venison is a wonderful meat for many dishes. For example, a marinade of red wine or olive oil, herbs and spices such as juniper or bay leaves can be used to enhance the gamey flavour. Suitable accompaniments include chanterelles, red cabbage, savoy cabbage puree or chestnuts.

1 kg of venison leg is ideal for a group of 4 - 6 people

The Salzkammergut in Upper Austria, with its large areas of forest and meadows and low population density, is the ideal home for the wild animals that have settled here.

Rivers and streams ensure that the area is well watered. This allows grasses and flowers to grow, providing first-class food for the animals. Careful hunters and foresters manage these areas with great dedication.

The hunted animals are brought to the nearby game room, inspected by the official veterinarian and respectfully processed by our master butcher.
