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.

Edible Louisville Magazine

Got a mailbox full of Edible Louisville magazine in todays mail complete with a two page article covering Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seeds mostly focusing on our "Kiva" turkey breeding project. Have already been contacted by multiple folks from Louisville and Kentuckiana about turkeys and seeds and other stuff for next year. It's nice to be recognized for hard work from time to time! If you get a chance check it out, should be available lots of places around town and I know at Fresh Start Growers Supply

There should be an internet version up sometime in the near future. I'm hoping the photographer will be kind enough to pass along some photos that weren't used for the article for use here on the blog as the ones in the magazine turned out beautiful. After our Washington County Artisans and Farmers meeting tonight I dropped one off to some friends at the local watering hole to show off my new "Centerfold" which they really got a kick out of!

Thanks to the editors and photographers of Edible Louisville Magazine as well as to the fabulous (and might I add highly underrated Loren Freed who went above and beyond to capture my rambling and tubling/stumbling incoherant ramblings on multiple ocassions and through multiple technical difficulties to get this interview!
