Quality Venison


A Cut Above

Committed to delivering quality venison of the highest standard, we farm, process and supply venison products to chefs and suppliers in the Scottish food industry. We offer a wide range of fresh and frozen venison products that are expertly cut and perfectly prepared right here on our farm. All of our products are then carefully vacuum packed to lock in the goodness.




As a traditional farming family, we are no strangers to the hard work. We run a successful beef and sheep farming business and as the demand for farmed venison continued to grow, we decided to turn our attention to venison farming.

We launched the Downfield abattoir due to a lack of Venison processing plants in the UK. The whole process proved too costly and put a lot of stress on our deer, which we didn’t condone. So we decided to do things differently and converted an old farm shed into our very own state of the art processing plant. Stagison Venison produce was born!

Quality Venison



On that fateful day, we entered into a new and exciting growing market where we hope to challenge and change the perception of venison farming in Scotland for the better.

What’s more, all our hard work is paying off. We have a well-earned reputation for excellence in animal nutrition, care and processing in the industry. We are also working hard with local farmers and suppliers to encourage the growth of venison farming in Scotland, and in turn the growth of our economy, by supplying quality venison products to the rest of the UK (and who knows, maybe one day to the rest of the world).
