What is Biodynamics?
Biodynamics is an ecological and ethical approach to farming which works in rhythm with nature. A biodynamic vineyard is a self-sustaining ecosystem; a living organism that brings plants and animals together in a fertile and biologically diverse environment, resulting in products with excellent nutrition and flavor. In addition to following all the principles of organic farming, biodynamic farms and vineyards go several steps further.
Biodynamics creates vibrant biodiversity. Soils, plants and animals are provided with balanced nutrition which supports healthy immunity. A holistic approach is taken with pests and diseases, including incorporating a robust diversity of plants and creating a habitat for natural predators. (Example! Problem: slugs. / Solution: ducks. / Result: delicious escargot-enriched duck eggs!)
Biodynamics is a responsible and sustainable method of farming and winemaking which builds stronger communities, contributes to social and economic health, and offers regenerative solutions for our planet.
“Biodynamic farming is holistic land stewardship at its best. It is the highest paradigm of sustainable farming, offering one of the smallest carbon footprints of any agricultural method.” ~Demeter USA
