“Biodynamic farming is all about the soil. You can’t grow nutrient dense food from nutrient deficient soil.”
Rob Watson

Biodynamics on our farm

We have set aside 30% of our farmland to naturally regenerate back into rainforest

We use natural composts & herbal sprays instead of chemical fertilisers

Planting & harvesting are done in conjunction with the lunar calendar which influences soil & plant development

A biodynamic farm is one single living organism with nature. Our surrounding wetlands & rainforest are an integral part of our farm. 

We use no chemical fertilisers growth hormones or GMO’s

We use natural composts & herbal sprays instead of chemical fertilisers

We plant cover crops to add valuable nutrients to the soil and maintain soil quality

Everything is about the soil. You can’t grow nutrient dense food from nutrient deficient soil

Biodynamics

Biodynamic practices and preparations breathe life, energy and strength into the land, which in turn produces food that is rich in nutrients. Like Organic farmers, we use no artificial fertilisers, pesticides, antibiotics or growth hormones. Biodynamics however takes organic farming a step further. It focuses on the farm as a living ecosystem which is self contained, self-sustaining and follows the cycles of nature.

Our farms are more than just cows and pasture; we have planted rainforest and created wetlands to cultivate a living farm organism. Biodynamic farming is a holistic view of agriculture with high awareness of the interconnectivity between earth, plants, animals, humans, the moon and planets.

Preparations

We focus on actively regenerating the soil using specially fermented biodynamic herbal preparations made from manure, plants and minerals. These preparations stimulate the life processes on the farm and act like homeopathic remedies for the microbial, plant and animal life found here.  You only need to apply the preparations to the soil in very small doses – a tiny handful of biodynamic manure will fertilise an acre of paddock!

Demeter

Biodynamics is a fully certified method of farming and can be found across the world in gardens, vineyards and farms alike.

We have been certified by Australian Demeter Biodynamic.

The Bio-Dynamic Research Institute has been accredited by the Commonwealth Government (DAFF Biosecurity) Organic Program, as a recognised Approved Certifying Organisation.

DEMETER Bio-Dynamic certification is also recognised by Australia’s Humane Society International as meeting their ethical livestock needs, and is listed by them as a recognised certification organisation.
