Using the forces of nature, strengthening vitality

Biodynamic agriculture considers food production to be a cultural task. Milk, meat, grain, vegetables, and fruits that are biodynamically grown and produced, are certified with the Demeter mark of quality. They provide healthy nourishment, and with it the foundation for the human being’s development of soul and spirit.

Biodynamic farmers take cosmic laws into account when cultivating the land. They treat compost, soil, and plants with biodynamic preparations. The farm is seen, like an individual, as one self-contained organism.

Research on animal and plant breeding, as well as social and economic questions, is essential for future, progressive development. Part of this development is also a specific, professional training for biodynamic farmers.
