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.

Some pics from around the farm for fun.

A nice cut flower arrangement Kim made for the county fair.

Dry Land Acorn squash in the new Tire Garden

Various C. Pepo Winter Squash (and a few True Gold Crookneck)

The Tire Garden (AKA Enoch's Garden, more coming soon)

Bush Butternut in the tire garden.

Two Saucerful Of Secrets Sunflowers Kim picked as specimens for the fair.

Quite possibly the ugliest (but scrapiest) bantam I've bred yet. A cochin x polish cross.

Amanda Palmer first place at the fair. (Peck of Shelled Corn)

Luna, one of our two new potbellied pigs (and coincidentally a "pot bellied" me in the background)

Batman and his duck Harem.

Kiva turkey poults.
