Wild Venison Butchery & Cookery Course

Venison Butchery & Cookery Course

Join us for a day in the woods celebrating wild venison


Learn how to skin and butcher a whole deer in a relaxed and informative environment surrounded by the crackle and pop of fires. From here you will learn how to turn each of the carefully butchered venison cuts into a feast over fire which we will graze on throughout the day.



  • The benefits of eating venison and the effect it has on the environment.
  • How to skin and butcher a deer into primal cuts and further seam butchery.
  • Using the whole animal from nose to tail and showing you how to reduce waste getting the most from the animal.
  • A veritable meat feast cooked throughout the day and a chance to try lots of cooking techniques! These will range from grilled cutlets w/ cobnut romesco, seared liver w/ cherry plum hot sauce, glazed venison flatbreads to hot smoked tenderloin with nettle tempura and pink pickled onions.
  • Cooking and knife skills which can easily be translated into your day to day cooking at home.
  • Fire lighting and management for extended cooking periods.
