What is biodynamics?
Based on the spiritual insights of Rudolf Steiner, the biodynamic system encourages one to appreciate the earth as a coherent, living organism and be sensitive to and work with its cycles and needs. Biodynamic agriculture combines the best traditional farming methods with up-to-date management to create a modern system that makes ecological sense.
