We aim to provide the country’s best chefs with the country’s finest venison. Our mantra is simple. Every carcass we provide comes with the following:
FULL Provenance – a certificate showing date of shooting, name of stalker, where shot, species, age, and a description of the stalk.
A DEFRA veterinary inspection stamp – CYA !
Delivered by one of our knowledgeable staff in a temperature controlled
vehicle, wrapped “old school” in muslin.
One of us is always available on the phone to discuss your needs.
All of our deer are either from wild, sustainable herds, or from deer reserves and parks where the deer live as wild.
Huntsham Court and the surrounding estate has been the family seat of the Acland Troyte family since 1760 when William Troyte married the recently divorced Lady Acland. The Court, although there had always been a house on the estate, was built in 1868 and stayed in the family for nearly 100 years.
The estate is currently in the hands of the Cross family and is run by brothers Richard and William.
The Huntsham Shoot has long been an integral asset to the estate and has been a fundamental aspect of village and local life. When combined with the local fishing and hunting it is clear to see that sport is a way of life in this part of Devon!
The Huntsham Shoot is owed and run by Ben Horne and Nick Martiny Roberts, both of whom are active in hosting shoot days.
Having shot with his family on the estate for many years, when the this historic shoot become available a few years ago Ben could not miss the chance to take it over. Nick joined as a partner before the 2016/2017 season began and neither have looked back since.
Nick and Ben run the shoot for their personal pleasure rather than profit, therefore allowing and constantly encouraging a focus on improvement in both the shooting and hospitality afforded to their clients at Huntsham.
