WHO WE ARE: Dave Bishop and family have been farming their 300-acre farm for about 30 years. Located in the center of Illinois about 160 miles from downtown Chicago, the Bishops operate a diversified farm and raise a bit of about everything.
WHAT WE HAVE TO SHARE: Prairierth crops include corn, soybeans, oats, alfalfa and grass hay, and a large assortment of vegetables. They also have 25 pasture-raised beef cattle and about 750 free range chickens each summer for meat and eggs. We find the bond between the land and those who live and work on it to be very important. Prairierth farm also has an acre of native prairie plants including flowers and grasses.
