In the heart of Colorado’s Sawatch Range, Knapp Ranch is propelled by a vision to preserve the land, water, and wildlife in a rustic and timeless setting.
Knapp Ranch’s newest acquisition is Second Nature Gourmet - 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 catering company focusing on ingredient quality and scratch-prepared foods; 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.
Building from the good we started.
Second Nature 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 available at Knapp Harvest.
What is Marla’s biggest seller? Her chicken pot pies. And then there are her grab-and-go salads, casseroles and soups. Try them all at Knapp Harvest and you’ll be back for more.
