Providing quality natural and organic meat products since 1987. When you pick up an Applegate product, you can be assured that... Our animals are never given antibiotics. Healthy animals don’t need medicine. Instead, we give them space, fresh air, and a healthy diet, which we’re certain beats the alternative. Our livestock eat a completely vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. Cattle are grass-fed, just as nature intended. Hogs and poultry are fed a grain diet that includes corn, soy, barley, and flax. Our animals are never given hormones or artificial growth promotants. They grow at their natural rate. All of our products are made with natural and organic ingredients. If you aren’t familiar with a particular ingredient, email us and we’ll tell you what it is. Our products are all minimally processed, allowing for a wholesome texture and taste. Our products never contain artificial nitrates or nitrites. Instead, we use celery juice and sea salt to preserve our products the natural and old fashioned way. Our deli meat, hot dogs, burgers, and bacon are gluten and casein free. Our products are made from natural and organic whole muscle meat. Yes, even our hot dogs! No mystery here.
