About our vinegar
Apple State Vinegar is 100% organic, 100% delicious and 100% Washington State. It’s raw, never diluted and packs a powerful punch of flavor and living culture. At 6% acidity (20% stronger than other brands), it’s the best bet for adding to drinks, tonics, dressings, marinades and more.
Our apples are harvested from the beautiful Yakima Valley and the riverside orchards of Okanogan County. We support organic farms, which grow sweeter crispier apples with sustainable, low impact agricultural practices!
Save the Salish Sea
Our planet is a delicate balance of wildlife and human activity. Earth’s oceans in particular have been impacted by industrial development and pollution, causing wildlife to decline in number. In the Salish Sea of Washington and British Columbia, orca whales struggle to find the salmon and clean waters that they need to survive.
July 24, 2018, Orca Tahlequah gave birth to her second calf, who died within half an hour of its birth. She carried her dead calf with her for 17 days. This heartbreaking news brought our attention to the marine life where we live.
The Southern Resident Orcas could become effectively extinct within the next 15 years if we don’t do something bold to help them. Calf mortality is at 50%; high levels of marine contaminants are passed from mother to baby. Orca health is deeply connected to the health of the ocean.
Call to Action
We must be part of the solution. We give 1% of all of ASV and Shrub Farm sales to non-profits that preserve and restore clean ocean habitats and we are proud members of 1% for the Planet. Our mission is to inspire people to care about our marine ecosystem and the health of its wildlife. Thank you for supporting these goals!

Orca Prayer Wheel
Local artist Chris Moench (Axis of Hope Prayer Wheels) designed this beautiful prayer wheel bottle especially for Apple State Vinegar. Hand-carved on porcelain, it represents the inspiration behind our brand: bringing land and sea together to support all life while offering a prayer of hope that human prosperity can coexist with conservation goals.
