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.

How stupid can they be?

Attention Botanically challenged people (read moronic/self entitled wanna be stoners). The Salvia family contains 900 known relatives. One (and this is important) only one contains the psychoactive ingredient known as Salvinorin A. That plant is Salvia Divinorum. Home depot does not sell Salvia Divinorum, period. However, I do.

That said, Salvia Divinorum is not a "party" plant, it will not get you "high" or make you feel "good". It is a healing plant. I will be propagating salvia divinorum over the next few days for sale to Indiana residents, I will not however be selling to anyone under 18 and I will require ID. Even though the plant is not YET illegal in Indiana it demands respect, if you have no respect for the plant you do not need it!

this isn't necessarily about your post. however, i've lived in Salem most of my life and i didn't even know you were out there in Pekin! you need to add in somewhere (which i'm sure you've either done or will do at some point based on what i have read) is that the "improvements" made to our "food system" have been extremely detrimental to our health as a whole society. we no longer give our children real milk to drink that has the good fats to make their brains work better or the good bacteria that warn off allergies and illness. we no longer give them meat from where they met and cared for the animal that lost its life for our sustenance. our fruits and veggies were picked unripe and bitter across the country or the world that have far less nutrition than those picked when they were ripe and ready on the vine/tree/bush.

all that said, i need to come and see you, get to know you and all that jazz as that's the way it should be and hubby is in need of composting worms to put in his new worm bin. and i'm sure my daughter and son will enjoy learning about these everything.

i do hope you have a good day.

Hello J.

We would love to meet you and give you a tour of the farm and a rundown of what we do sometimes. We've been doing this for six years now, but everyday there are new people that are local that find us, so don't feel bad about not knowing we were here.

In the archive you'll find a lot of older posts about the food industry facts that you just presented. We do a lot of plant breeding, particularly selecting for traits which improve the nutrition of our food crops and we and our friends have published many papers regarding our findings and detailing our goals and ambitions. Some of our projects are already out and in the hands of growers, purple and multi-colored high anthocyanin lines of tomatoes and sweet corn, field corn and other crops.

I look forward to meeting you and feel free to stop by the farm or by the Washington County Farmers market at the fairgrounds on Saturday mornings from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
