What is Biodynamic Agriculture?
is based on Rudolf Steiner's universal philosophy. It relates to
the cosmic influence on the earth and thus on plants. We try to
bring in the cosmic rhythms in to the plants forms and use the Biodynamic
formulations that enhance these influences.

farm chemical use soared. In 1995 chemical usage grown upped 800%
and Chemical Fertilizers up to 53%, resulting the soil degradation.

of Biodynamic Agriculture is that, food raised Biodynamically is
Nutritionally superior and tastes better than foods produced by
conventional methods. This is a common thread in alternative Agriculture,
because other ecological farming systems make similar claims for
their products. DEMETER a certification program for Biodynamically
grown foods was established in 1928. Today, Biodynamic Agriculture
is practiced on farms around the world, on various scales and in
a variety of climates and cultures.
Farming is the Spiritual Science of anthroposophy founded by Steiner
and its emphasis on farming practices intended to achieve balance
between the physical and higher non-physical real in to acknowledge

In a nutshell,
Biodynamics can be understood as a combination of "Biological
Dynamic" agricultural practices. "Biological " practices
includes a series of well known organic farming techniques, that
improve soil health "Dynamic" practices and intended to
influence biological as well as metaphysical aspects of the farm
(such as increasing vital life force), or t adapt the farm to natural
rhythms (such as planting seeds during certain lunar phases).
