About Deer farm


Large-scale commercial farming of deer originated in New Zealand, and New Zealand remains the world's most advanced deer farming industry.
Deer are not native to New Zealand. The first deer were brought to the country from England and Scotland for sport in the mid to late 19th century, and released mainly in the Southern Alps and foothills. The environment proved ideal, and the uncontrolled feral populations grew to high numbers. By the middle of the 20th century, feral deer were regarded as a pest because of their impact on the native forests. From the 1950s, deer cullers were employed by the government to keep the numbers in check.
The export of venison from wild deer started in the 1960s, turning a pest into an export earner. Industry pioneers saw an opportunity to build on this base, and in the early 1970s started capturing live deer from the wild and farming them. A new industry was born and rapidly spread throughout New Zealand, and later to America and Canada.
