De Rips is a village east of Helmond and Eindhoven in southern part of the Netherlands. Until the late 1990s it formed the municipality of Bakel and Milheeze alongside Milheeze and Bakel, but in 1997 it was forced to merge with the larger Gemert municipality.

The area surrounding De Rips on the one hand has lots of nature (forest) but the agricultural economy is also dominated by bio industry. It has the highest pig density in the Netherlands.
