Louth Food & Drink Festival – 29th September

stourton estates venison burgerWe are for once, not hosting but delighted to attend the Louth Food & Drink festival. Our lovingly reared venison will be available to purchase on the day. We hope to see you there!



The whole venison industry is under increasing pressure at the minute as suppliers up & down the country are having to make efficiencies in the cost of producing venison.  This is particularly difficult given the investment in fencing and steps we need to take to make a consistently high-quality product and maintain high animal welfare standards.  So we are really encouraging people to buy venison from us directly.  We are also working with some local restaurants & pubs who have been amazed by the high quality of our farmed venison.  If you would learn more about sampling our venison in your local eatery please get in touch with us and we will be happy talk to you about this & how easy it is to create tasty healthy venison meals for your customers!

We have most cuts of venison in stock at the moment. To place a venison order simply phone or email Tina on 01507 578236 or contact@stourtonestates.co.uk. Orders are collected from the farm office at LN9 5PB or if we are out delivering landscaping products in your area we’ll pop them on the delivery route.


We welcome our Placement Student – Neve Whiteley

We are delighted to welcome Neve who has joined us as part of her placement year studying Agriculture at Harper Adams University.  Neve will be with us until June 2025 and will get involved in all aspects of the diverse business we run here at Stourton!

She has already hit the ground running feeding the red deer and checking the young calves are all fit & healthy running with their Mums.  We hope that harvest will be imminent and at that point Neve will become a full-time member of the harvest team corn carting throughout the summer…


On the Estate

We have been busy mowing the trails and generally having a tidy up in preparation for our forthcoming events & open days.  It was great to have the Focusability team here for their annual visit, this group has learning difficulties and access requirements so it is lovely to be able to take them on a visit that they wouldn’t normally be able to do.


Deer Diary

We’re 90% through calving, the little ones are now active and running with the herd.  We will start to give them some barley in July to keep them tame & this also helps us inspect them more easily.  They are all out enjoying swimming ponds in this hot weather at the minute.  We are in the midst of fencing to make our deer enclosures a circular system to ease movement and around into the handling centre.  We have also been busy mowing the parks to control weed growth keeping nettles & thistles in check.  Our second cut of silage took place last week in a dry weather window.  Thanks to Dan, Neve & Jamie who brought in another 200 bales from the field which are now nicely & stacked ready for winter – a great team effort!

We hope to see you at one of our summer events!

Thank you for your continued support.
