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.

Hi Alan
I'm interested in your apple and pear trees! Where in Indiana are you exactly relative to Chicago?

Bishops Homegrown said...

Hello Linda, we are in Southern Indiana, Washington County to be exact. About 30 miles north of Louisville Kentucky, so it may be a bit of a drive!

Hi Alan
Yes, a long drive I would say.....Too bad. I would of loved to get ahold of those trees...
