Our Mission

Greenacres will always reflect the style and grace of founders, Louis and Louise Nippert. Our mission is to preserve for the public an area reflecting the traditional environment of Indian Hill and its historical significance by preserving Greenacres in its current state of woodland and farmland. To encourage conservation and appreciation of nature by providing the public, particularly children, opportunities to study plant and animal life in their natural settings. To encourage appreciation of music and culture by providing facilities and an atmosphere that will encourage artists to display their talents for all age groups.

Our History

Louis and Louise Nippert purchased 47 acres of land known as Greenacres Farm from the Green family in 1949. Between 1949 and 1998, the Nipperts purchased several adjacent tracts of land and today the farm comprises nearly 600 acres. It was originally operated as a mid-twentieth century gentleman’s farm. In 1988, wanting to give back to the community, they started Greenacres Foundation with the intent to preserve the land for the education and enjoyment of future generations. Their mission lives on today, serving over 30,000 students a year, while expanding into new communities.

Earlier this week the weather was perfect for winter bed prep. Around the middle of Autumn, we begin to prep various garden and flower beds for winter so that they have healthy rich soil in the spring. Using old baleage as a form of mulch in the fall, we ensure full ground cover that doubles as a carbon source for soil life that will eventually break down over the course of the winter. Any remaining baleage can be easily raked out by the spring and the beds are ready to go to begin planting into! ...

To reduce the impact and emissions of constant mowing, our estate crew works with the livestock team to utilize sheep (and cattle) to graze areas that traditionally would have been mowed. Using temporary fencing, the flock is moved around the property improving soil fertility and root structure as they go. Our livestock crew makes sure to interact with them daily to socialize them and train them to move with ease from one paddock to another. ...
