North Coast Organic
For over 90 years, it has been the mission of North Coast Organic to produce delicious, wholesome products while preserving agricultural traditions in our community. Water, earth and air, free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, combined with the skill of responsible organic farmers, is their recipe for producing fruit of exceptional quality and flavor. It is with this practice that they are able to offer you their North Coast apple products that are unlike any other. Made with only U.S.. grown apples, they encourage you to taste the difference.
North Coast Organic is located in a historic apple cannery nestled in Sebastopol, California. Since 1922, they have produced organic apple sauce, apple juice, and apple cider vinegar in this special corner of the world. Sonoma County is famous for growing wine grapes, but many other crops are grown here as well. The morning coastal fog and warm afternoon sun, combined with the skill of responsible organic farmers, is the perfect recipe for producing fruit of exceptional quality and flavors.
North Coast Organic began as a small dryer operation known as Oehlmann Evaporator. Local fruits, including apples, prunes, pears, and hops were delivered to our location and dried. The dryer operation was owned and operated by husband and wife team, Rudolph and Maude Oehlmann.
In 1945, Oehlmann Evaporator became incorporated and changed its name to Manzana Products. Manzana is the Spanish word for apple and was selected to honor the many Latin Americans that were employed by the company.
Today, North Coast Organic continues to produce apple juice, sauce, and apple cider vinegar, as well as many specialty products, such as organic pear juice and grape juice. They are proud of our long term relationships with local growers, as well as growers in Washington State and Arizona. All of their produce is organically grown in the United States.
