Agriculture in Brodowin entails working with nature. We are committed to biodynamic agriculture. Our work is a cycle of soil, plant, animal and human beings. Through systematic crop rotation and targeted green manuring, we try return to the soil what we have taken from it. A special feature of bio-dynamic agriculture would be our homeopathic preparations, which give strength and vitality to the soil and the plants.
Holistically oriented agriculture
The roots of bio-dynamic agriculture dates back to 1924, when Rudolf Steiner gave his pioneering speeches on “Humanities for the thriving of agriculture”. He designed the image of a holistically oriented agriculture as an alternative to the increasing use of synthetic fertilizers. As a result, Silesian farmers founded the “experimental ring of anthroposophical farmers”.
Out of respect for nature / Demeter
Steiner’s impulses turned into a powerful movement, named “Demeter” after the Greek Goddess of Fertility. In the forthcoming decades, the Demeter idea spread throughout the world. While intensive, conventional agriculture continues to increase its yields with little consideration for nature and the environment, more and more people are looking for an alternative. Demeter products provide for the demand of this alternative.
