Biodynamic® Farming

The model of sustainability in agriculture.

Totally cosmic.

It might seem crazy in today’s precision-guided, technologically advanced world to embrace a modest, self-sustaining, labor-intensive form of farming developed in the early part of the 20th century by a philosopher/scientist named Rudolf Steiner . But that’s exactly the path we’ve been on since 2009. And what a great ride it’s been so far. Our yields are bigger. And the soil is incredibly rich and fertile.

As a Demeter® Certified Biodynamic® grower we come from a place where everything is inter-connected. Plants, animals and human beings work together to restore and harmonize the vital life forces of the farm. Think of it as sustainability on steroids. It is above and beyond organic in every possible way. All organic material generated from the farm including you guessed it – even cow poop – is recycled and returned to the soil.

A totally amazing way to farm.

The biodynamic model depends on the cycles of the moon for planting and harvesting and the use of homeopathic preps using cow horns, pulverized quartz, specific plants and more. These preps nurture the soil and protect the crops from nasty things like disease and frost. Yes, it sounds wacky, but it works! Our yields are amazing and the potency and flavor is alive and delicious.

"To truly know the world, look deeply within your own being; to truly know yourself, take real interest in the world," - Rudolf Steiner.

Back in the 1920’s, Rudolph Steiner devised an alternative to the popularity around using synthetic fertilizer and pesticides in Europe. It was called biodynamic farming. He was way ahead of his time. And now it’s back and gaining popularity and momentum.

Farmers around the world are embracing this increasingly relevant form of farming. Which is just another fine example of how interconnected we all are on this amazing planet. You have our permission to howl at the moon. We do it all the time. 

Homeopathic Preps: Mother Nature’s biodynamic fertilizers and pesticides. 

Biodynamic Preps (BD) are the primary form of fertilization and disease control. They help moderate and regulate the biological processes in the soil and enhance the life forces of the farm as a whole living entity. Cow horns, quartz powder and chamomile flowers among other things are used to create concoctions that are buried in the ground for a specific amount of time or strategically placed around the farm to respond to a specific need or issue like soil fertility, frost, fungus, etc.  We use seven different ones in very precise quantities.
