Until the second half of the 20th century, La Rippe was mainly an agricultural village. Today agriculture focuses on arable farming in the lower parts of the community, as well as on cattle and dairy farming on the Jura heights. There are other jobs in wood processing, in local trade and in the service sector. In the last few decades the village has developed into a residential community.
