About Richert Ranch

At Richert Ranch we believe you are what you eat.  
That's why we raise health food!  Have you ever
opened the egg of a free range hen next to a store
bought egg?  The free range egg is so yellow it's
almost orange whereas the store bought egg is a weak,
pale yellow.  The same is true in the grocers meat
department.  If you feed an animal growth hormones
and antibiotics you will eat the growth hormones and
antibiotics in the animals product.  If you feed the
animal natural food like grass and clover the animal
will get vitamins and minerals and in the animals
final product you will too.  Our farm is located in
northern Indiana and we believe in education.  
Contact us if your interested in an educational tour.
What's New?
We are all done with lambing, and ended the season with thirty-eight lambs! They are growing
out very nicely and have beautiful, lustrous fleeces, and excellent conformation, just like their
parents.
Currently, we have been working on expanding our pasture and are almost ready to
turn our flock out on the new part. We have also done some shearing recently, and are looking
forward to entering the fleeces that we harvested in some wool shows this summer. The sheep
who were just shorn are enjoying their summer haircuts,
and Cutie Pie still demands her daily
back scratch!
