At Applegate, our mission is to change the meat we eat. By that, we mean making good meat—the kind that’s raised humanely without antibiotics and added hormones—accessible to as many people as possible. To achieve this evolution, we put our resources toward the people we think have the most potential to change our food system—eaters, farmers and innovators. Our work involves educating people about the important issues that impact their food, addressing the challenges faced by new farmers, and supporting big ideas that can improve the way good meat is raised, produced and distributed.
We're Inspired By Our small part in making the world a better place.
