Wild & Parkland Venison
Curtis Pitts Deer Services was established in 2016. Since then, the business has grown organically from a small start-up while Director, Curtis Pitts was studying for his degree in Land Management at University. It is now a thriving and successful business offering all elements of deer managing services, including full-service game butchery and online, retail and catering game meat sales and supply.
Curtis has grown up with a passion and interest in the management of deer instilled through the generations from his grandfather to his father and has now taken the family tradition of managing deer to the next level.
Curtis not only manages deer on parkland and wild estates but also supplies his quality venison and game to local butcheries and restaurants in Devon. It is now available for next day courier delivery on a national level. His quality venison and game are available online and processed on site in a state-of-the-art, purpose-built game larder.
Curtis has a thorough working knowledge of all aspects of deer management, and his passionate approach to the sustainability and welfare of the animals he deals with and the environment are at the forefront of everything he does.
Having obtained the necessary industry regulated qualifications which include DSC1 Game and Meat hygiene, the NCASS food hygiene level 2, and BASC insurance, customers can be confident that they are in expert hands whether managing, processing or buying game meat.
Achieving national recognition as an expert in his field, Curtis has been a guest speaker at the British Deer Society, Dartmouth Food Festival and at local artisan venison evenings to name but a few. 2021 will see Curtis join forces with BASC and Taste of Game to stage a series of virtual presentations on game butchery to catering lecturers from all over the UK as part of their Continual Professional Development programme.
