Welcome to the Farm at Knapp Ranch

The Farm at Knapp Ranch, and our dedicated, expert staff are committed to growing the finest quality produce and micro greens in the Vail Valley. Our high altitude, glacially enriched soil, and mountain-pure water is what gives our produce a special kind of flavor and freshness that you won’t find anywhere else in the area.

We partner with select local restaurants and chefs to help bring their menus to life with fresh, gourmet-quality ingredients and a locally grown twist.

About the Farm at Knapp Ranch

The Farm at Knapp Ranch is set in a breathtaking alpine valley near Vail and Beaver Creek and enveloped by the Sawatch Range. Betsy and Bud Knapp conceived and built the ranch as an informal country retreat for family and friends, and for the past three years, have been experimenting in growing vegetables and fruit trees at 8,700 feet in elevation.

High altitude farming takes a sophisticated, educated touch. Some varieties of produce do grow quite well at altitude, like lettuces and micro greens, and we also grow other produce that flourish in hot days, cold nights, and drier air.

The Farm at Knapp Ranch believes there is always room for improvement and proves it by continuing to expand its growing space. The infrastructure gets modified while farming happens, and reflects the growing relationships with local chefs and restaurants and how best to meet their needs.

Our Produce

The time that summer says “hello” to autumn is when vegetables like pumpkins and cabbage are reaching their peak. Yet, our greens are still very much in season. Download our Produce List to see what’s fresh.
