Wild boar chops
from wild boar from the wild

The back is considered an exquisite cut of wild boar and is characterised by its tender texture. Despite high heat, the steaks remain exceptionally juicy and tender and develop their characteristic flavour.
The two muscle strands that run along the top of the spine are called the wild boar's back. As these muscles are exposed to relatively little movement, the meat has a significantly higher intramuscular fat content.
The wild boar's back is always considered the noblest cut and delights with its tender texture. Prepared as steaks, the wild boar's back is a wonderful change with an intense aroma.
If you compare it with ordinary pork, you will immediately notice its dark colour. Significantly leaner than pork, wild boar is characterised by its much more intense gamey flavour.
Our wild boar back steaks are excellent for short roasting or grilling and remain incredibly juicy and tender despite high heat. So if you want to try a new kind of steak, you've come to the right place.
The taste is simply incomparable. Much more intense than roe deer or venison, wild boar has a distinct gamey flavour that often needs no further seasoning.
Why is wild boar meat so delicious?
High quality of life = high quality of meat
In expert circles, wild boar are also known as wild boar. This term derives from the dark, almost black colour of the animals' fur. But there are other aspects that distinguish wild boar from their pink relatives.
In comparison, wild boar meat is a delicate treat and is prized for its distinctly juicy texture. This is not least the result of the higher fat content of wild boar.
But what does this have to do with organic? Wild game is generally a particularly healthy meat, provided it comes from the wild, of course. The animals' diet includes everything the forest has to offer. This includes acorns, mushrooms, leaves and herbs. Feed additives are therefore out of place in the wild, just as they are here.
Genuinely wild facts
The speciality of our wild boar back!
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 pay attention to 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.
