appleHAUS™

A Riveridge export label, appleHAUS™ makes a bold red, white and blue statement about high-quality, grown-in-the-USA apples.

Riveridge is located in the city of Sparta, in the U.S. state of Michigan – the mitten-shaped one in the north. We were established in 1990 by three partners who have over 100 years’ experience in the retail grocery and fresh produce and apple business.

Our appleHAUS™label reflects the German heritage of Michigan’s renowned Fruit Ridge apple growing region – where our Sparta offices and orchards are located.

After they settled along the shore of Lake Michigan in the 1800s, farmers on “the ridge” soon realized that the big lake had a big influence on agriculture. They saw the potential to grow fruit, especially apples – and the rest is history.

Riveridge is a vertically-integrated grower-packer-shipper. We personally farm 860 acres of apples on Fruit Ridge and work closely with over 100 family-farm growers to plant the newest varieties with the best technology and latest research knowledge.
