Locally produced corn fed Ontario lamb and goat are more readily available in grocery chain stores thanks to the work of Lewis Land & Stock.  The animals are raised under an Ontario Advantage Good Agricultural Practices Advantage Traceability system to maximize their quality and food safety.  The meat processing plant has also implemented the Ontario Advantage Food Safety and Traceability program, which demonstrates to large retail grocers that Ontario lamb and goat meat can meet their standards and exceed them.  The animals are traced throughout the process and the end product is shipped to small butcher shops, small retail chains and ethnic markets.
