Leroux Creek Foods received its Organic Certification from the Colorado Department of Agriculture in 2001. We are proud to support the Organic Industry. When our customers purchase a jar or sleeve of our delicious organic apple sauce, a conscious choice has been made to take care of our planet’s environment as well as personal health and well being.
Supporting Local Farmers
In a society where Corporations now dominate over family business, at Leroux Creek Foods, supporting family owned and operated farms is a must! When we finish harvesting the bounty from our own crops, we turn to our small local organic farms where their strong commitment to environmental values makes their fruit the obvious choice for our sauce.
