Rosewood Winery is the only winery in the nation that is devoted to providing employment opportunities to people with developmental disabilities. Nestled in the heart of the 750-acre Rosewood Ranch, the Winery is a nurturing environment where our clients find their passion and develop skills and self-worth.
The Rosewood Wine Cellar is located in downtown Great Bend, Kansas. Many of the products available for purchase are produced with care and dedication by Rosewood client-employees. Our client-employees take pride in their work, which is showcased and sold at The Wine Cellar. Of the products sold at the Wine Cellar, many are made with care by our client-employees at Rosewood Services, under the expert guidance of our Rosewood Creations managers.
Greenhouse & Gardens
Our Greenhouse and Garden provides all-natural, freshly grown tomatoes to the community nearly year-round. We also grow jalapeño peppers, which are used in some of our Rosewood Creations products. Clients began working in the Greenhouse and Garden in spring 2010, and enjoy the experience of watering, fertilizing, picking and selling.
The success of the Greenhouse and Garden is dependent upon a few dozen Rosewood clients who work to care for and grow the tomatoes before they are brought to market. Clients spend several hours a day helping to care for the plants and harvesting them. A popular item at Rosewood Gallery and the Great Bend Farmer’s market, our tomatoes often sell as fast as the clients can pick them.
