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.

Irresponsible Genetics and Irresponsible Government.

This should be enough to scare some sense into a good portion of you.

That's right, the government will soon have the ability to check your genetic profile "on the fly" as it were, and presumably without your consent. So much for democracy, liberty, and all those other hallmarks of freedom provided to us by our founding fathers, seems like now days those words are just dusty old definitions in an ill used dictionary that don't mean much of anything to anyone with the power to effect any amount of real change.

BTW, you guys keeping an eye on the revolutions springing up across the middle east? You should be, and with good reason, things can and do change overnight.

I would love to talk to you about an issue that I feel is a hot topic in environmental news and something that most families are intrigued to read about. I have written an article that I think your readers would be interested in seeing on your blog.

I'm looking to promote that idea that by encouraging grocery shoppers to branch out from their usual selections and to join the local food movement, they can help provide a healthy food choice for their families and create a more sustainable agricultural system.
