Rappelkeppi Farm

{PA-German Dictionary} Rappelkeppi: obstinate, stubborn, rebellious.
We are the Orbens: Chris and Erin, plus two young sons and a sweet old dog. We grow organic vegetables on our farm in Kutztown PA. We are inspired by rebels – both subtle and overt. Sometimes it takes a great deal of stubbornness to follow a dream, accomplish a goal or make positive change. In fact, the previous owners of our farm were just this way. Paying tribute to this spirit and homage to the farm’s Pennsylvania Dutch history are part of what Rappelkeppi is all about.
