Forest Produce

We sell a range of produce which comes from the Forest: beef from Red Poll cattle which graze here in the summer, award winning venison (in season), firewood from our coppicing programme, as well as planks from larger hardwood trees which have been felled.

Award Winning Venison

Our fully sustainable, responsible and ethical deer management plan allows us to provide premium quality wild venison.  This is available through the season (Sep to Feb) in a range of joints, diced for casseroles, and as burgers and sausages, fresh and frozen.  Buy from the Forest shop, or call us on 01279 870678 to purchase directly.

In 2015, this venison won the National Trust Fine Farm Produce Award.

" The venison was very well presented with a subtle aroma and flavour"
- Richard McGeown, Fine Farm Produce Award judge

Locally produced beef

Treat yourself to some beef, prepared from the herd of red poll cattle which graze in the Forest during the summer.  We have a range of joints, as well as diced for casserole, and burgers, fresh and frozen. Buy from the Forest shop.


There’s nothing like the warmth of a roaring log fire on a chilly winter evening. You can order seasoned firewood, cut to size, from September (01279 870678).  Delivery, from Oct onwards, is free within a 5 m radius and £10 within a 10 m radius.

Sawn Timber

We have a range of sawn timber arising from felling hardwood trees in the Forest. The main selling activity is during Woodfest, in early September, but it is also available via the Estate Office (01279 870678) during the rest of the year.
