  • Description:
    Demeter®, a non-profit, is the only certifier of Biodynamic® farms and products. Biodynamic agriculture is a philosophy and methodology that views a farm as a self-sustaining ecosystem responsible for creating and maintaining its individual health and vitality without any external and unnatural additions. The standards are quite rigorous, including organic certification prohibitions against the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and going much further to include a biodiversity set aside of 10% of total land, on-farm fertility and pest control, rigorous processing standards that emphasize minimal product manipulation, and most importantly whole farm certification (versus a particular crop or area allowed in organic certification). It is one of the most sustainable forms of agriculture, creating healthier food for healthier people and a healthier planet. Demeter asks consumers to join their effort to heal the planet by choosing Demeter certified Biodynamic® products.
