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.

Hey, it's spring and we've got stuff for sale!!!!!!!!

The weather is certainly warming up! This week we've got bench grafted apple trees for sale $10.00 each. 50 unique varieties you won't find at any local nursery, many from Kazakistan the homeland of apples with disease resistance to fire blight! Fantastic antique apples too!

We also have a few cole crop seedlings for sale (cabbage, broccoli, kale, mustard, spinach), 6 for 2.00. Also, we have a ton of Kazakistani apples from seed! These should make fantastic cider or possibly even cullinary apples as they came from known parents. 4 Inch pots for $3.00 each! You will not find this stuff elsewhere. If your going to be wanting turkey poults, guinea keets, or... See More rabbits get your name on the list now! Also there is still time to join the CSA! Would you rather buy from someone you know and a farm you can visit or would you rather continue to rely on the big box stores to supply your produce? Which do you feel safest with?

For every 100 dollars invested you get a 10% discount. This means you actually get $100 dollars of produce, plants, and more for 90!!!! $200 for 180!!! Does wal mart do that? I didn't think so!

For a limited time we are also offering composting and fishing worms! These are great for reducing organic matter/household waste to rich beautiful compost, the main soil amendment we use here at Bishop's Homegrown! Great for fishing too! Why would you ever go buy woms every time you go fishing when you can raise your own for the cost of some table scraps! For 20.00 we will fill up a four gallon bucket with worms, bedding, and worm caccons (eggs), enough to start a small worm farm, these little guys breed quick and with the right care the population with double in just a couple of months!

Feel free to come tour the farm or give us a call 812-967-2073. E-mail is also an option at:
