Biodynamic farming is a self sufficient farm...nothing brought in from outside the farm (no bought feed for instance)...a totally self contained unit. They are also establishing a cooperative, where outside people can invest in the farm and then share in the food products grown on the farm (eggs, cheeses, grains, bread, meat...chicken, beef, pork). This is a way of ensuring you know where your food comes from...literally straight from the farm to your plate. The idea really excites me, but I don't think we live close enough to them to make it practical for us.
Loved their "chicken chalet"...what a coop! (makes our guinea coop look like a play model) Skylights in the coop!
On a biodynamic farm, the cows must have their horns intact. The farmers think it is inhumane to cut off their horns, and they say that it is a proven fact that the milk from cows with horns is much healthier to drink.But with a view like this, who could get any farming done?
