Changing the Meat We Eat®. At Applegate, we create delicious meat products you can feel great about. We believe the best recipe for a happy life is to enjoy great tasting foods that are good for you too. On the farm, we raise our animals humanely feeding them vegetarian grain, and never using antibiotics or animal by-products. Our recipes call for only the best ingredients. Our mission is to change the meat America eats, and we're doing it one meal at a time.
