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.

Heritage Turkeys for Thanksgiving!

We have a very limited supply of Free Range, Heritage, Eco-logically grown turkeys for Thanksgiving this year. These birds are a wondeful link between our agricultural and cullinary past with an equal ratio of dark to white meat and a flavor which you simply will not find in any sore bought bird. Period. Our birds are allowed free range all day and are only cooped at night. They are feed only with feed grown and milled by us or by a local miller using only non GMO components and no chemicals or hormones ever. We hatch and raise these birds from our own eco-logically grown breeding flock and we can voutch for the quality.

Most birds this season will be either of Naragansette, Bourban Red, Blue Slate, or Midget White heritage stock. Prices are base on size; medium (12-16) for 50.00 or large (16 plus) for 75.00. All orders must be prepaid and arrangements must be made with us to pick up the bird the day of slaughter here at our farm in Pekin Indiana in order to meet Indiana Poultry laws. No birds will be delivered period!

Get your order in quickly as these will be spoken for fast and the quantity is very limited. Orders can be placed by e-mailing or calling us at:
Alan Bishop

Calling and getting your order in and paid for quickly is the only sure way to ensure one of these beautiful and wonderful tasting birds can and will grace that special place on your family table come Thanksgiving. Experience what the pilgrims knew as a turkey this year and not the same old bland white turkey you buy at the store every season.
