Old Virginia was first established in 1906 in Front Royal, Virginia as a preserves and jellies brand with the seasonal addition of applesauce, tomato juice and apple butter. By 1953, Old Virginia had 34 products under its name.
Bowman Apple Products, now Bowman Andros Products, LLC, in Mt. Jackson, Virginia purchased the brand in 1982 and today continues to produce ORCHARD TO TABLE high-quality applesauces, apple butter and fruit sauce dessert cups using primarily handpicked Shenandoah Valley Virginia apples for this trusted brand.
Today, Old Virginia offers great tasting applesauces, apple butter and fruit sauce dessert cups using traditional southern recipes that are authentic to the original, only better! Made with pure cane sugar and no high-fructose corn syrup in traditional glass jars, this delicious home-style, farm-stand taste is now available in local supermarkets.
The apples used in Old Virginia products are spectacular because our growers hand select each variety for its flavor and hand pick the best to create a full-flavored sauce that balances sweet and tart with a thick and grainy texture.
We think our Old Virginia applesauces, apple butter and fruit sauce dessert cups taste better than homemade!
