We are the global nonprofit
Building the Field of Cellular Agriculture

New Harvest is a donor-funded research institute advancing the science behind cultured meat.

harnessing the most cutting-edge technologies from all spheres of science to grow animal product without animals

Meat, milk, and eggs from cells instead of animals.

Industrial livestock production erodes biodiversity, monopolizes arable land, and incubates recurring and predictable zoonotic diseases.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

New Harvest researchers are pioneering the next frontier of agriculture, developing novel technologies to alleviate our dependence on animal agriculture and restore our planet.

Discussions about nomenclature typically revolve around what to call lab-grown meat. Cultured meat? Clean meat? Or my personal favorite, immaculate meat? But other terms had to be created for this work to progress, one of which was subject to surprisingly little debate.

Getting to know…John Pattison and Ian Johnson of Cultured Decadence

John Pattison and Ian Johnson co-founded Cultured Decadence, a cellular agriculture seafood company developing cell-cultured lobster, in 2020. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Cultured Decadence is one of the only cellular agriculture companies in the Midwest, and the only company in the United States targeting shellfish. At the beginning of April, Cultured Decadence raised $1.6 million in a pre-seed round and received the first state funding for a cellular agriculture company (1).

I spoke to John—a former New Harvest intern and the current treasurer on our board of directors—to hear about his experience starting a company. Ian also joined the call to share his technical perspective.
