The Demeter Biodynamic® Farm Standard is a comprehensive organic farming method that requires the creation and management of a closed system minimally dependent on imported materials, and instead meets its needs from the living dynamics of the farm itself.
In Biodynamic farming, we are using our own resources to create a self-sustaining cycle — beginning with building compost, which then breaks down and becomes humus. Humus is the ultimate source of the best nutrients for the soil and the microbes that live with the soil and that feed the roots of our trees and plants, creating healthy trees and plants that we eat.
Here’s what we provide our plants in a biodynamic system:
Water, Light, Air, Food, Earthworms, Bees and Organic Cow Manure
In a biodynamic system, nothing is wasted.
The Demeter Biodynamic® Processing Standard (there are sixteen categories in all, including oil, wine, cosmetics and body care) fundamentally ensures an unbroken chain of accountability from the farm to the finished product. The Standard protects against manipulation of the Biodynamic agricultural ingredients as much as possible to allow for their integrity to define the product. Products must contain significant and verifiable Biodynamic ingredients to be allowed to use the term Biodynamic on product packaging and labeling, in order not to mislead consumers.
