ABout Us


R.C. Ripberger Farm has been home to many over the years. The late Richard Ripberger bought the farm in 1991, his dream retirement after years in the steel business. His daughter, Michele, with her husband Neal Reishus, moved to the farm in 1997 after careers in business management and medicine, and they now operate the land organically through their business, Healthy Homestead. Their children, Magdalene (with her family of 5) and Zack, also live and help on the farm.  To read a full interview and the story of our journey to the farm, check out this story from the Kokomo Tribune.

As Healthy Homestead at R.C. Ripberger Farm, we direct market 100% grass-fed beef and lamb and soy-free pastured eggs. We value health, wellness, and sustainability for humanity and the earth, as guided by our Christian faith. We don’t believe that good food should only be for the wealthy and so we do our best to keep our prices accessible to many income levels. To assist in keeping those costs affordable, we’ve added “non-farm” activities to our plate, such as The Cottage and the Summer Silo Series, an outdoor concert series on the base of an old silo. We rely on our community and our incredible sponsors. Check us out on Facebook and Instagram (@healthyhomestead46901) to stay up to date with our various family events and activities.

We’ve all come to love this place more than we could have ever anticipated and invite you to join us in the holistic pursuit for wellness.
