Farmers. Chefs. Food lovers.

Second Nature Gourmet joins us at the table.

Knapp Ranch’s newest partnership, Second Nature Gourmet, is a perfect and natural alignment of values and commitment to quality standards. Not to mention a shared love of fresh-off-the-farm ingredients.

Starting from scratch

Chef Marla Leblow launched Second Nature Gourmet in the Vail Valley in 2016, a premier scratch-prepared catering company focusing on ingredient quality; using locally- and responsibly-sourced products.

She is thrilled to share her nationally-learned skills and innovative cuisine with the community and to continue to support the local food movement in the Vail Valley as part of the Knapp Ranch family. Since a young age, cooking has been like second nature to Marla and she is excited to share her talents and drive for locally and thoughtfully produced foods to locals along with visitors in our beautiful mountain community.

Leblow says she has long been using Osage herbs and Knapp Ranch microgreens and mushrooms grown at the Edwards farm in her meal creations and looks forward to the expanded opportunities to work with Osage under the Knapp Ranch banner.

Building from the good we started.

Second Nature Gourmet operations will remain unchanged, with Marla continuing to cater events and deliver gourmet foods to customers’ doorsteps. She will also continue her Fly Away Gourmet division, a catering service that provides customized, in-flight dining.

In-demand dishes.

What is Marla’s biggest seller at Knapp Harvest? Her chicken pot pies. And then there are her salads and her soups. Try them all and you’ll be back for more!
