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.

Keep an eye out for a new interview!
Recently I completed a very good, though long and rambling on my behalf, interview tih Ottowa gardener where I shared much of my history about my farm and my methods, it should be posted to The Veggie Patch Re-imagined in the near future as well as at the Homegrown Goodness message board.
