Taking a Holistic View

Biodynamics is a systems approach, where the farm, vineyard, orchard or garden is viewed as a living whole and each activity affects everything else. Management is based on the grower’s own careful observations, plus the results of tests and analyses. In this way, modern technology and traditional knowledge marry to form a highly-effective method that’s unique to each location.

What are the advantages?
Biodynamics uses very limited external inputs and re-uses most on-farm waste, so it has a low impact on the environment. It also provides an economical way of farming because most of the costs are met at the time they are incurred.

One of the most easily-seen and dramatic benefits of biodynamic practice is the exceptional quality of the produce: flavour, appearance and keeping quality are all enhanced.

The international trademark Demeter is your guarantee that produce is grown biodynamically.
