If you read this blog you probably are familiar with the virtues of organic food and farming. Well, yesterday I was reminded of my trip to Switzerland after watching a new video on Organic Nation TV about biodynamic farming. Founded by Rudolf Steiner, biodynamic farming is considered one of the initial forms of and significant contributors to the development of modern organic farming. In a nutshell, biodynamic farming goes a step beyond organic to create a closed-loop system of soil maintenance using cover crops, manure and herbal composts. Focused on balance and healing it looks at the farm as a living, breathing organism.
Closer to home, off the top of my head, I read that Warrups Farm in Redding is a certified organic farm that also employs many biodynamic practices. Also, Woodbridge Farm in Salem, CT is a certified biodynamic farm. If you know of any other local farms using biodynamics please add them in the comments section.
