Lake Land Meats & Farm Market

The Vaughn family has been farming in west St. Catharines since 1902 and at its present location since 1918. Three generations work together to farm 250 acres, which include livestock, pasture, hay production, cash crops, market gardening and eggs.

We currently run a 25-head Hereford/Angus beef cow/calf-to-finish operation. This means that we take care of the beef we raise from start to finish. We feed our own home-grown hay to our cattle, as well as corn for finishing, with no hormones or additives in their feed. We started into deer and wild boar farming in 1986. Our red deer/elk hybrid herd now stands at 40 females. We raise our deer and wild boar from start to finish as well, with complete control over their feed and care (no hormones or feed additives). Although we have grown vegetables for years, we didn't retail them until 2009, when we offered our first produce CSA programme. It was a great success and we are looking to expand it.

In 2010 we offered our first meat CSA programme, called Revolution 2012. It is a five year programme that will help us build enough capital to start the next phase in our business, namely a production kitchen and culinary studio.

We opened our on-farm store in 1995 which now retails a wide selection of game meats, traditional meats, eggs, CSA baskets, fresh seasonal produce and pickles and preserves from our garden.
