Balcaskie has a large, healthy population of wild Roe deer. Meat from the East Neuk wild roe deer is particularly renowned for its quality due to the prolific crops grown in the area and ideal natural habitat. Roe deer venison is finer-grained than highland red deer and is often less gamey in flavour. In order to maintain a healthy balance between the wildlife and other activities on the estate, such as planting new trees and hedges, it is necessary to manage the large population of deer. This enables us to bring a premium product to our customer, the whole process of which has been managed in house by our game keeper and then butcher.
Part of Wildlife Estates Scotland (WES), Balcaskie iscommitted to operating in a way which protects and supports our wildlife and habitat.
