Try Bison, Elk or Venison


Bison is a delicious, lean meat that is regularly used as a substitute for beef. Because of its lower fat content, bison has a deep red color with minimal marbling. Cooking with bison is very similar to cooking with beef, with the exception that bison cooks much faster. Join D’Arcy’s as we discuss some bison cooking tips and methods that will be sure to impress your family and friends at your next dinner party.

Alberta is a world leader in Bison production. This meat packs all the flavour of red meat and is tender yet high in protein and nutrients and low in fat. Try it ground in your hamburger, meatloaf, or taco recipes or pick up a steak for your next BBQ.


The term “venison”, which comes from the Latin word “to hunt”, refers to the meat of antlered animals and provides a wild flavor that comes from the natural foods that the animal eats. Pasture-raised venison is one of the healthiest meats you can buy. It is low in fat, high in protein, and provides essential nutrients such as dietary iron, zinc, and B vitamins.

When it comes to Alberta-raised deer, we offer a beautiful selection of smaller cuts. Our Alberta-raised elks offer an amazing selection of medium cuts.

Depending on supply, we are also sometimes able to stock ground venison and deer steaks as well as elk ribeye steak and ground elk.

If you’ve never tried venison before, it doesn’t take like chicken! Nor does it taste like beef. However, the overall effect of venison meat is similar to beef - meaning that it makes a flavorful substitution in traditional beef dishes such as hamburgers, stews, and steaks.

D’Arcy’s Meats carries a small selection of Alberta-raised deer and elk. Our venison selection is free of added hormones and antibiotics!
