Cervena Venison

Cervena Natural Tender Venison, a unique New Zealand food.

From the fresh, open farmlands of New Zealand comes a meat so tender, so delicious, that we gave it its own name. It's called Cervena® natural tender venison.

About the Name:

The name Cervena reaches back to historical origins, combiningcervidae, the Latin word for deer, with venison. 

Criteria to Become Cervena Venison:

In order to qualify as Cervena Natural Tender Venison, the farmed animals must meet specific criteria:

  • Three years and under.
  • Naturally raised:
  1. the deer must be able to roam and graze freely in natural conditions on the pastures of the farm
  2. no growth hormones or steroids are administered to the animals
  3. the deer are fed only on grass and can be supplemented during the colder months with only natural feed like hay and silage
  • Transported and processed according to strict quality-assured standards of the Cervena brand; licensed processing plants are audited bi-annually by an independent agency.

Cervena venison is available in restaurants throughout New Zealand, and is exported to the USA, Canada, Mexico and Australia.
