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.

Do you know why Michael Pollan sucks?

Dear foodies, know why Michael Pollan sucks? 'Cause he ain't Joe Salatin and he doesn't get it, anyone can make a career of stating the obvious. Prepare non farmer foodies to have your brains blown away by a huge dose of truth.

Here at Bishop's Homegrown we have an insanely effective third pary verification system, it's called a farm tour. Come and visit us anytime anyday and we will gladly show you around, if you don't feel comftorable with conditions then you don't buy, but as of yet all of customers have been healthy and happy and they show it by returning weekly, monthly, and yearly to purchase from us.

Thanks for posting the interview link...great reading.

I think your third party verification system of a farm tour is a great idea. People would be horrified to find out how their Tyson poultry was raised, butchered, and processed.

My husband's experience doing a construction job on a local corporate contract turkey farm was an eye opener for him. He was so disgusted that he stopped eating turkey from any large scale-industrial farm/company. The filthy conditions alone were enough to inspire this choice. The sad thing was this was a relatively new and clean facility-by industrial scale farming standards.

Conversely, a trip to your place would inspire people to support small farms that practice good animal husbandry and stewardship.

I certainly was inspired by the trip to your well as the turkey that we purchased from you. It was like an entirely different bird than those tasteless Butterballs. Your turkey was so savory and -even the white meat. Even more enjoyable since the bird had been raised in such nice condition with plenty of room to roam (your birds literally have the run of the farm-at least during daylight).

I would encourage everyone reading this blog to try home grown free range poultry - it is a revelation.
