Cooks Venture, an AgTech and food company, raised $4m in funding.
The round was led by Golden West Food Group.
The company intends to use the funds to expand national distribution to wholesale and retailers.
Founded by Matthew Wadiak, former COO and founder of Blue Apron, Cooks Venture is establishing regenerative agriculture systems through a combination of crop science, animal breeding and husbandry and long-term data monitoring.
The company’s first offering is pasture-raised, slow-growth, heirloom chicken raised on their 800-acre farm, hatchery and breeding facility in Northwest Arkansas.
