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.

Phillip Forsline and Kazak apples!

Don't know how it is that I missed this before, but theres an awesome interview with my friend Phillip Forsline, previously of ARS GRIN Geneva, speaking about the wonderful Kazak apples he was kind enough to share with me last year and which make up the majority of his lifes work at the Geneva research center.
