The Applestone Meat Co.., New York, developed vending machines that dispense fresh cuts of beef, lamb, pork and sausages as well as a variety of frozen options 24/7.

All of the meat is sourced from animals raised without added hormones or antibiotics by farmers committed to their well-being.

Furthermore, the selection can change daily based on availability, from beef ribeye, pork chops, lamb chops and ground beef to flat iron, short ribs, country style pork ribs and lamb shoulder chops, to name a few.

The shops use existing machines that typically house sandwiches or other prepared foods, but have been retrofitted for meat vending.
