We believe in the tradition of the good old days, all our gourmet-smoked products - made from red deer, wild boar, buffalo, or grey cattle - are based on traditional Hungarian recipes.
The tradition speaks for itself as red deer and wild boar hunting was the most ancient and the most traditional way of animal consumption. Red Deer is perhaps the game king of all of Europe, and the Wild Boar is the only one of the wild pig families that lives in European forests.
Beside of the red deer and wild boar the indian water buffalo and the Hungarian Grey Cattle also derived from the oldest breeds of the Hungarian animals.
These unique tasting meats reflect the wealth of natural grass and flowers grown in our national parks.
Grey Cattle is naturalized in Hungary since the 9th century, since then the Grey Cattle herds serve as gene banks, due to their apparent resistance to diseases. It’s also very interesting, that 100 years ago, buffalo was still a common farm animal. In fact, in the Somogy and Zala shires of Hungary, you can find Buffalos descended from creatures brought to the area in the 1600’s.
All our gourmet products are based on traditional Hungarian recipes, and the flavours speak for themselves!
Our highly skilled team of butchers and nutritionists expertly craft our products in small batches immediately after the marination and smoking is complete, in order to create the best possible taste. All these artisan products are hand made by the head salami master.
The secret of our premium smoked meat comes from the way we prepare it – using beech wood that is either lightly smoldering or burning, depending on the product in question. This preserves the meat and adds to the amazing flavor.
At Venison Gusto we really care and we are using only the best possible quality of meat. We know that the health of our game and the quality of our product is directly linked to their surroundings, and so a policy of Biodiversity is practiced on all the areas from where we source game. The game animals forage for a varied diet of grasses, leaves, shrubs, berries and other vegetation, meaning that they are truly free range or bio.
Sustainable agriculture is vital for the continued health and well-being of the countryside, and our harvesting is carefully regulated to ensure the continuing health and survival of the wild game population, which in turn ensures venison meat of the highest quality.
The animals we work with are raised in the most human way, the red deers and wild boars live free in the wilderness, the buffalos and grey cattles live in hardy livestock in the field of the national parks, which means they aren’t fed antibiotics or the bovine human growth hormone (rbGH), or with any other artificial drugs. They roam freely grazing on grass and other vegetation, their diet is more balanced, they are not allowed to eat genetically modified foods and they spend time outdoors in the fresh air, because the forest provides herbs, nourishing native grasses and other vegetation in climatic conditions that are ideally suited for wild animals. Venison and any game is always a first-rate healthy meat choice, because it’s low in colesterol, and higher in protein than any other type of red meat.
We are fiercely proud of our top of the line products that come from the finest Hungarian Venison, Wild Boar, Grey Cattle and Buffalo. Our genuinely wild and free grazing herds ensure the meats finer and exquisite grain.
