John Croissant first came to Colorado from Russia at the beginning of the 1900s. Like many new immigrants, he determined on making a new beginning and staking a claim to the open frontier of the West. They started on a 160-acre pioneer homestead just east of what is now the Pawnee National Grasslands. There were zero computer-controlled irrigation sprinklers, GPS controlled tractors, or Ph.D. accredited consultants. Nevertheless, they survived and adapted to live from the land year-after-year no matter the circumstances. This was a foundational principle was passed from one generation to the next.
The Croissant family has always had an agricultural legacy in Colorado since the beginning of the 1900s. The understanding and knowledge of growing and producing crops on Colorado’s drought-prone soils were crucial to our family’s existence.
Henry Croissant took what was learned from his father’s dry-land wheat farm and transitioned into growing with irrigated crops. During the early 1900s, new tools of technology, pumps, sprinklers, and motor-powered tractors helped changed the region. Productivity transformed Northern Colorado.
Herbert Croissant understood that with great advances in farming technology, one could widen the possibilities of growing new varieties of crops not normally known to the Colorado high plains. Fresh irrigation water from the Rocky Mountains along with proper soil management allowed many from his generation to prosper.
Michael Croissant started by growing many unique crop varieties with the family farm, he knew the key was with the soil. After supplementing the soil with compost, this provided most crop's ability to survive and thrive in Colorado's arid climate. So with this idea in 1978, he founded and started an organic compost company called B.O.S.S. Compost Inc.
Jack Croissant has continued to branch out with all that was learned by the four generations prior to him. Much like his grandfather, he saw the potential for growing new and un-tested crop varieties. In the early-2000's he planted a multi-acre organic vineyard.
