This week I talk to Dr. Michelle Thomas, the animal welfare manager at Applegate Farms. Most known for their deli meats and bacon, Applegate is a leader and pioneer in sustainably sourced animal products. During our conversation, Dr. Michelle Thomas and I discuss:
- how Applegate maintains their high sourcing standards with a rapidly growing business.
- the resources, attention, and time Applegate puts into their relationship with farms.
- her unlikely career prior to agriculture.
Heads up that I make my biggest Meatcast mistake ever in this episode!
For this week’s INSIDE EPIC, we unveil the Meatcast Mailbag. You can now be a guest on the EPIC Meatcast by calling 512-686-MEAT. I explain how and share our first Meatcast Mailbag entry!
