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.

For those asking about reserach editorials and some other big news.

I will begin writing some of my yearly farm research editorials shortly, I have a ton of topics to expand upon and look forward to it, just waiting for the time to make itself available. Before I can think about it I must first begin re-stocking "The Wyrm" composting project with fresh bedding and harvest the old bedding and take the poject to capacity to ensure adequate compost for next season, and then the conversion of the old Rion hobby greenhouse into a turkey shed and the building of three further rabbit hutches and burning of brush in the Food Forrest project. Surely by then my intelectual fires will be burning hot and I'll find the time to do a bit more elaboration on our many projects here at bishops homegrown.

In the mean time you can check out the new Bishop's Homegrown Farm web-site at it will be aimed mostly at local audiences and more for information than anything else, but hey, at least I made an effort!

In other news there is the possibility of a massive project involving Michael Lachaume, myself, Hip-Gnosis Seed Development/Homegrown Goodness and many other well known plant breeding personalities in coordination with a massive research facility in the coming months....more on that later.

Not fair to give us a little tidbit but no details! Let me know if I can be of any help.
