Brand Overview

The Applegate® brand was founded by Stephen McDonnell and Chris Ely, who shared a passion for natural and organic meat products. In 1995, Applegate Farms was officially founded, using a network of small farmers and manufacturers to grow and produce products following the company’s sustainable protocols. In 2006, Applegate Farms created the Applegate® organic hot dog, which has become the company’s ambassador product. Today, the brand provides consumers with a variety of meat products in the refrigerated, frozen and fresh sections of the grocery store.
