Our Mission

Greenacres will always reflect the style and grace of founders, Louis and Louise Nippert. We 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. We encourage conservation and appreciation of nature by providing the public opportunities to study plant and animal life in their natural settings. We 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.
