Biodynamics

Developed in the early 1920s based on the teachings of Austrian writer and social activist, Dr. Rudolf Steiner, biodynamics refers to an spiritual, ethical and ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition.

Today, the biodynamic movement is adopted in farms, gardens and vineyards of all sizes and in various continents. Biodynamic farmers avoid using chemical pesticides and fertilizers, and instead rely on compost and beneficial insects to keep their crops healthy. They strive to create a diversified and balanced farm ecosystem, and also plant, cultivate and harvest according to solar influences.
