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.
The lambs have arrived! We are all done lambing, and we have twenty seven lambs bouncing
around. They are adorable! Cutie Pie still demands her daily back scratch! Also, we recently
bought some show White Leghorn bantams and Black Australorps and have started hatching
chicks from them. It has been a busy spring so far!
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!
