Celebrating 100 years of Biodynamic Agriculture

This year marks one century of the international biodynamic movement, with Hōhepa Hawke’s Bay being the longest-certified biodynamic farm in operation in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Biodynamics is a method of organic agriculture that re-uses on-farm waste, meaning low impact on the environment, exceptional quality of produce and animal welfare. Based on the teachings of Dr Rudolf Steiner, ‘a farm’ is viewed and understood as a whole living organism with each activity being interconnected.

We plan to commemorate Biodynamics’ 100-year milestone with the whole community through a day of celebration on Friday the 3rd of May and we invite you to be part of this with us.
