Manzana heritage in pictures
Manzana Products Co., Inc. is a historic apple cannery nestled in Sebastopol’s Green Valley. For almost 100 years, apple sauce, apple juice, and apple cider vinegar have been produced in this little corner of the world. Our area is a famous growing region for wine grapes , but many other crops as well. In fact, Manzana was started as a small dryer operation known as Oehlmann Evaporator. Local fruit such as apples, prunes, pears, and hops were delivered and dried. It was owned and operated by husband and wife team, Rudolph and Maude Oehlmann.
In 1945, Oehlmann Evaporator became incorporated and changed it’s 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 Manzana continues to produce high quality apple juice, apple sauce, and apple cider vinegar for our customers and our R&D Department works tirelessly to innovate and improve our recipes and products. We strive to maintain the integrity and quality of our timeless apple products by producing them with the most current equipment and more efficient technology.
