Osage Gardens wholesale organic greenhouse operation took root in January 1992 by selling tomatoes to local grocery stores and restaurants. Osage Gardens was growing basil as a side project but quickly realized that there was a high demand for fresh basil. This led the farm to specialize in fresh culinary herbs. After 10 years the farm expanded onto a new piece of land located on the Colorado River between New Castle and Silt. they now grow over 22 different varieties of culinary herbs including basil, thyme, rosemary, chives and dill (for a complete list, see the section on Fresh Culinary Herbs).
Osage Gardens currently has 26 acres of certified organic land and currently farms more than 2 acres under greenhouse cover. Osage Gardens grows year round.
