Indiana Botanic Gardens celebrates 100 healthy years

January 31st, 2010 - By Rob Earnshaw

A Hobart company is celebrating 100 years of keeping Americans healthy. Indiana Botanic Gardens, a leading provider of more than 500 high-quality nutritional supplements, including its best-selling Apple Cider Vinegar Plus for weight-loss support, was founded in 1910 in a small cottage of Joseph Meyer’s home in Hammond.

“He was an orphan in Germany and read a lot of books on plants,” said Tim Cleland, Meyer’s great-grandson and president of IBG.

When Meyer immigrated to the United States, he started in the printing business and in 1918 published The Herbalist, a book he wrote touting the benefits of plants.
