The taste of 9000 sacred years …

Originating in Mesopotamia Fallow Deer was described in many ancient cultures as early as 7000 BC. They graced the tables of the Egyptian Pharaohs and the Old Testament considered Fallow Deer a kosher animal.

The Greeks and Romans both honored Fallow Deer as sacred game and kept them in specially created groves. They were dedicated to Artemis and Diana, the Goddesses of the Hunt, Fertility and Wildlife. For them the spotted summer skin represented the stars in the night sky and a male yearling was considered as the perfect love gift. Since the time of Charlemagne Fallow Deer were kept in many game parks in Europe. Royalty, knights and noble man gathered to hunt and feast on the royal game.

Green Dragon Venison

  • is delicious and mild tasting, unlike wild game. It comes only from young (15-24 month old) animals.
  • is most tender: the small size of the Fallow Deer results in very short muscle fibers, ensuring a uniquely fine textured meat.
  • has a high nutritional value: it is high in Protein (23%), very low in fat (3,6%) and has even fewer calories than chicken.
  • its remarkably high amount of essential linoleic acid plays an active role in the prevention of heart and circulation diseases.
