Joshua Applestone was an important part of the growth of whole-animal butchery. Now he's out to reshape another part of the business: purchasing. His Applestone Meat Co. Vending Machines let you grab quality cuts anytime, not just when the butcher is available. Currently, four of the machines sit at the company's Stone Ridge, NY shop, and are constantly restocked with beef, pork, lamb, and ground meats. The company will soon be expanding to Hudson, Scarsdale, and, eventually, Manhattan, with new, custom machines to make the purchasing process even easier.
