Alfred Reed Bishop and Doris William Butler
The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

I've been letting the larger counterparts of the chicks mentioned below free range for the past several weeks, they have learned their respective territories and times to enter and leave the coop fairly quickly. Not to mention they are obsessed with cleaning up the leftover greens and picking at the cover crops on the small garden next to their coop, effectively fertilizing and tilling that spot for me for next spring!
