Manzana Products Co., Inc. is a historic apple cannery nestled in Sebastopol's
Green Valley. For over 80 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.
