Our venison is harvested from truly wild deer that roam, unrestricted, their entire lives. We turned to innovative wild-harvesting methods in order to eliminate stress on the animal, ensure quality meat, and adhere to strict USDA requirements. Read more on why wild is so important…
Hawaii’s Axis deer are an incredible source of protein with over 8 grams of protein packed into each ounce. Because these deer roam wild, their diet is made up of a wide array of grasses and plants, making their venison a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Dense in iron and niacin, as well as a good source of Vitamins and B12, B6, and riboflavin, venison sourced from wild deer that enjoy such a varied diet, day in and day out, also provide a more complex and complete set of micronutrients.
Beyond being great tasting and good for you, our venison is also good for the environment. Hawaii’s ecosystems, although extremely beautiful, are incredibly vulnerable to the impacts of introduced species. Invasive feral deer are responsible for widespread destruction of ecosystems, including critical forested watersheds that are integral to Hawaii’s water and soil resources. Alongside many of Hawaii’s conservation initiatives, we proudly spearhead the mindful harvesting of Hawaii’s wild deer populations as a means to balance their impact.
