HIGH J ORCHARDS

American Made Since 2007

AC SUTHERLAND

KIRKLAND, Washington
High J Orchards began with the simple goal of making an applesauce that tasted homemade. Pure fruit, organic, indulgent yet healthful snack food.
Food,

Tell us about your business.

Named after my family orchards in Chelan, WA, High J Orchards was started with the simple goal of making an applesauce that tastes homemade. HJO’s applesauce is the healthful snack eaten for pure enjoyment, and the alternative to the boring, highly refined core brands, that sell bland flavors and uninspiring textures. Instead HJO’s offers distinctive flavor and a fantastic chunky texture. Our products remind consumers of the most enjoyable moments in food culture: eating homemade food made with love - healthful, sweet comfort that tastes like Grandma’s. Consumers are seeking healthy and indulgent snack foods and HJO’s offers just that. It is the first and only brand of premium applesauce enjoyed as an artisan snack. Handcrafted in small batches, production is an art, rather than science, but we keep it simple and naturally sweet by using better ingredients and traditional production methods. HJO's goal is to continue to develop and produce pure and organic nutritious fruit products.

What makes your business stand out?
