Lake Land Meats is a true local favourite. The Vaughn family has been farming in the area since 1902, providing Niagara residents with “food without compromise”. During the Welland Niagara Food Festival, locals line up for wild Australian kangaroo or camel burgers. In house they offer a wide selection of fresh and frozen meats and game, everything from chicken and beef, to ostrich and elk. They also carry fish, and even crocodile.
