Kip Kelley is the founder of Full Cellar Farm. Having grown up on a sheep farm, Kip knew he wanted to keep his family's farming traditions alive since he first started opening gates for his Mom when he was a kid. After some great experiences in learning from inspiring farmers in Maryland, Iowa, Spain and Oklahoma, Kip established Full Cellar Farm to provide food for his local community with lots of help from Grinnell College, Sandy Spring Friends School, Oklahoma State University, friends, family and especially his lovely wife, Sarah.
Joe Ringis joined the farm team in August of 2012 after working in the restaurant and lock smith industries. Though new to farming, Joe learned quickly and is now a central member of our crew who continues to exceed expectations. Earnest, down to earth and selfless, Joe can always be counted on to help out in a pinch, is eager to learn new things and keep a watchful eye on all the life forms on the farm.
