What is Biodynamic® Agriculture?

Biodynamic agriculture is based on the principles of Austrian scientist and philosopher Rudolf Steiner, dating back to the 1920’s (preceding organic agriculture by 20 years). Biodynamic farms are managed as self-contained, self-sustaining ecosystems that minimize their reliance on external inputs and minimize negative impacts on the environment. To be Demeter Biodynamic Certified, a farm must meet all the requirements of the USDA National Organic Program, in addition to the more rigorous Demeter standards. Biodynamic agriculture goes above and beyond avoiding the chemical inputs seen in conventional agriculture, relating the ecology of the farm or garden to the entire cosmos. Understanding and cultivating these “dynamic” forces in nature is expressed in many ways, ranging from creating a self-sustaining ecosystem on the farm and deciding when to plant or harvest different crops by the cycle of the moon, to making herbal preparations to inoculate and enrich compost.
