High Peak has one of New Zealand’s largest velvet herds using only red deer velvet, the best yielding and best quality velvet available.
High Peak can guarantee food safety and quality by being in control from behind the farm gate to the consumer – These are up to and above the standards required by the NVSB (National velvet standards body) and on farm through DINZ (Deer Industry New Zealand).
Because High Peak velvet is cut early and consistently, it has a higher content of blood, therefore a higher content of active ingredients making it the highest quality product on the market.
In 2015 High Peak was recognised as NZ's producer of the best quality velvet volumes over 1000 kilograms.
High Peak Red Deer Velvet is available in either capsule or tonic form.
