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.
Lambing season has started and we have welcomed twelve new shiny wool growers into our
flock. Mothers and babies are all doing well and it goes without saying the lambs are
adorable. It is always a cause for a smile to see them running and jumping around the pen.
Overseeing all this is 13-year-old Cutie Pie who still demands her daily back scratch although
it takes her a little longer to get across the pen these days.
As you can probably tell the store
bought egg yolks are on the right
and our egg yolk is on the left.

that web thing, SCRATCH MY BACK!"
