Ben grew up in Columbus, Ohio and attended The Columbus
Academy High School. Ben continued his education at Roanoke
College in Virginia for 2 years before transferring to Ohio Wesleyan
University, where he graduated with degrees in Environmental
Studies and Geography in 2002. After graduating from college, Ben
discovered his passion for farming. Ben completed an internship on
a farm with a CSA program, and later decided he wanted one of
his own. Ben and Lisa purchased the Sippel Family Farm in January
of 2004.

Ben enjoys raising vegetables and tackling new challenges on the
farm. Ben will now be adding the role of Dairy Farmer to his list of
talents! Ben also enjoys woodworking and watching M*A*S*H with
Charlie.
