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.

To our loyal blog readers, just wanted to let you know we haven't forgotten about you, just hit a busy patch of time. Today we lined a hand dug pond for our future duck flock with plastic and we've been hard at work propigating nursery stock, grafting trees, starting seeds, getting the cold frame ready and are getting ready to place an order for even more nursery stock as well as to take down and rebuild a small shed which will be a dedicated bird brooding area as well as expanding into Bob White and Tennesee Red qauil which will require yet more infrastructure. Tomorrow were picking up a load of compost from a neighbor and making plans to clean our his extensive inventory of manure!

Pics and lots of descriptive updates to come, stay tuned!
