There is a flurry of excitement and activity with this year's early Easter arrival and BERT'S RED APPLE is ready. Waiting for you in the meat department, ready to serve up for your special guests and family, is Hempler's Gourmet Spiral Sliced Ham, for a delightful, tender eating experience. Their hams are uniquely hand-crafted, providing thick, steak-like slices and made from specially selected fresh pork legs. They are slowly cured in their own natural juices with Hempler's time-honored family recipe, sweetened with organic honey then smoked over natural hardwoods, creating a moist ham with a rich, smoky, gourmet flavor. The secret family recipes stretch back to the Hempler sausage kitchen in Borken, Germany. Although they're pretty tight-lipped about the exact ingredients, it's no secret that they don't use MSG and all products are completely allergen and gluten-free. The Spiral Sliced Hams come with Hempler's Family Classic Glaze that's conveniently packaged for easy application and requires no cooking. Could it be any easier? You have enough to think about when creating the perfect Easter experience, so let Bert's help you serve the highest quality products starting with Hempler's award-winning hams.
A little background about the history of Hempler's, it all started back in Borken, Germany in the 1800's with the Hempler family sausage business. Hans Hempler served as an apprentice sausage maker and learned first-hand the family's old secret recipes, becoming a master sausage maker before moving to the United States. As the story goes, Hans (who couldn't speak much English) needed to pick a city in America to live and work in. Bellingham seemed like a good choice since he knew what a BELLY and HAM was. In 1934 he bought B.B. Meat and Sausage Co. (now Hempler Foods Group) which has been operated by the Hempler family ever since. What is interesting about this timeline is that Hans Hempler and Bert Croshaw were both starting their businesses in parallel during the Depression in the 1930's in Western WA.

Bert's Red Apple has been a fixture in the Madison Park neighborhood for generations. When Bert first started his grocery business in the late 1930's, he was founding a family run business that would not only be dedicated to providing excellent products and service, but also to serving the Madison Park community. Bert set the standard of a caring and compassionate small-business owner that we strive to match every day. Learn more about the history of Bert's Red Apple on our About Us page.
