Now that’s a giant deer! Pasture raised on 60,000 acres in central Canada, North American Elk is the second largest mammal in the deer family. These Elk graze naturally on grass, plants, leaves and bark. Our Elk are part of the “Never Ever Program”, where antibiotics, steroids and hormones are never used. Elk has more protein and less cholesterol than beef, pork and even chicken. Being a good source for iron, phosphorus and zinc, Elk is a great red meat alternative. With a similar color, Elk tastes like a cross of venison and beef. Occasionally, we source from New Zealand. The Elk from NZ are raised the same way as the Canadian Elk.
