Osage Garden's Story
In 1992, Tom and Sarah Rumery, organic farmers from Boulder, found their dream property: twenty acres of prime agricultural land located in New Castle, Colorado. The farm started with tomatoes and expanded to basil and other culinary herbs to support local chefs and shifting local tastes. Within a decade, greenhouses occupied three of their 20 acres. At the same time, their significant customer base exploded to include small regional natural grocers and Whole Foods stores in the greater Rocky Mountain region.
Knapp Ranch purchased Osage Gardens from the Rumerys in 2020, with the intent to continue the high quality, certified organic production standards and community-based agriculture. Osage Gardens aligns with the Ranch’s commitment to regenerative 0rganic farming and Colorado’s agricultural heritage. Manager Jared McDermott continues to oversee day-to-day operations, ensuring the quality standards established by the Rumerys continue.
