At Ease Orchard

Dec 15, 2022

Destination, Indiana Grown

Joe Ricker began At Ease Orchard in 2018, after spending numerous years in the military. He has since planted over 230 apple trees, a mixture of dwarf and semi-dwarf trees each adding their own benefit to the farm. In addition to caring for the apple trees, Joe has an apiary on the farm. He works closely with Indiana veterans to educate them on beekeeping and other farming practices.

Indiana Grown got first-hand experience to see the process of a bee’s lifecycle, drones, tree development and more! Joe is a heavily involved with the Indiana Veterans Collation and is focused on connecting veterans with agriculture. 

He is a huge resource for anything, and everything related to veterans and AgrAbility. The care, educational aspects, and passion of the operation resonate with us at Indiana Grown. We are proud to have At Ease Orchard as a member.

About Indiana Grown
The Indiana Grown initiative aims to not only form a clearer designation of which products truly come from Indiana, but to also help Hoosier consumers easily identify and buy these products. We truly believe everyone has a chance to share in the success of the initiative; whether it’s a large or small operation, high-tech or low-tech, traditional or non-traditional.
