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.

Happy birthday Darwin!

A few days early, but a happy Bi-Centinial birthday to Charles Darwin (and coincidentally Abraham Lincoln, although his bi-centinial has past, both were born on Feb. 12). Thanks for expanding the scope and scale of human understanding of natural history and evolution! Weather you believe in evolution or not, it cannot be denied that Charles Darwin changed the history of the world and opened the minds of millions of intrepid genetic explorers!

Natural selection, the survival of the fittest, does not necessarily include progressive development… if there were no advantage, these forms would be left, by natural selection, unimproved or but little improved, and might remain for indefinite ages in their present lowly condition.

~ Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species
