Q: What is biodynamic farming?

A: Biodynamic farming is farming in recognition of the basic principles at work in nature. German Rudolf Steiner first lectured on bio-dynamic farming almost a century ago and he viewed the bio-dynamic farm as an organism or self-contained entity: essentially a full-circuit system where anything that is taken is at least replaced and ideally is improved. Some of the cornerstones of bio-dynamic farming that we use here at Bluebird include green manures and crop rotation, live microbe and enzyme soil conditioners, and maximizing use of the moon’s energy cycles which vary, of course, according to the stages of wax and wane.
