Biodynamic Herbal Tonics
They taste delicious, because they’re made with Biodynamic red grape alcohol sourced from a Biodynamic winery. The lively flavor comes from plant material grown and harvested at the peak of activity on our very own Biodynamic farm.
Healthy soil. Healthy air.
Mother Nature gives us everything we need to thrive. It’s our responsibility to take care of her and heal the planet. We do this through Biodynamic, or “regenerative” farming. Today, two of our three farms are certified by Demeter® USA, the international seal of approval for Biodynamic farming practices and principles. The third is currently transitioning to organic on the path to Biodynamic. What is Biodynamic Farming? >
Healthy people. Healthy Planet.
As a Demeter™ Certified Biodynamic® farm, we proudly join with the Regenerative Agriculture Initiative, The Carbon Underground, New Hope Network, Climate Collaborative & OSC2, food advocates and regenerative farmers around the world in pursuing our vision of helping to heal our planet through agriculture.

Milk Thistle for Liver Health
Q. If you could select only one herb to use to support liver and overall detoxification, what would it be?
A. Great question, without hesitation it would be Milk Thistle. Milk Thistle has been used for over 2000 years and studied for its liver supportive properties, detoxification, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Silymarin, one of the active ingredients in Milk Thistle has been reported to also help with the regeneration of glutathione, commonly known as the master antioxidant of the body. As the New Year begins, knowing that this multifaceted herb is part of my patients’ wellness protocols helps me work with them to build a strong health foundation.
