Ripley County Farms

Ripley County Farms, LLC is a family-owned and operated contract nursery. With over 30 years experience in the horticultural industry, we produce oak and other related hardwood seedlings for public and private landowners, as well as various reforestation and conservation programs.

We are an annually-inspected, Missouri state-certified nursery. All of our seed sources are from reliable suppliers located throughout the Midwest. We have worked with these suppliers since the establishment of our nursery. The majority of our seeds are from the same groups of native trees each year allowing us to monitor our crops to the source. We can offer provenance on all our seed relative to the USDA growing zone where our seedlings are to be planted. This practice promotes the successful establishment and vitality of a new planting. It will also aid in meeting the seasonal requirements for proper dormancy and timing of flowering/fruiting cycles along with other silvicultural factors often overlooked when establishing a new viable reforestation plan.

Ripley County Farms is a 180-acre facility located in Doniphan, Missouri on the banks of the scenic Current River. As a growing location, we are on the edge of zone 6. The weather is generally cold but not severe during the winter. The ground seldom freezes for any long period of time, permitting us to harvest throughout the early spring. This allows us to provide our customers with the freshest plant material available anywhere. Our facilities include an in-ground drip irrigation system, walk-in cold storage, and a 12,000 square foot packing house.

We have good quantities of oak and other hardwoods available for this coming planting season including much sought after under story or wildlife habitat varieties. We also produce rooted and unrooted cuttings of hybrid poplar and cottonwood clones, as well as, several of the more popular commercial wine grape varieties as own-rooted cuttings. These are for sale on a first come, first serve basis.

We enjoy meeting and getting to know the landowners, managers, and consultants located throughout the Midwest. As both a wholesale and contract nursery, we will be glad to grow the varieties you need. This will allow you to make plans well in advance of planting time with the secure knowledge that what you need will not only be available but available in the correct quantities. You will find our prices very competitive.

Please accept this open invitation to visit our nursery. We would enjoy meeting you and discussing your plans and ideas for the future. We look forward to serving you.
