At Applestone Meat Company in Accord, New York, vending machines now sell fresh cuts of locally raised meat, free of hormones and antibiotics. With the swipe of a credit card, customers can choose seasonally available meat products, such as sausages and steaks. The vending machines are open 24/7, and are fitted with advanced refrigeration systems to ensure that the food stays cooled and safe for consumption. If a machine’s temperature deviates from the safe temperature for more than 30 minutes, the system disallows customers from making a purchase.
