Development of soil health and structure is fundamental to the process of bio-dynamics. The application of the bio-dynamic preparations to the soil stimulates and regulated the desirable biological process and functions, which produces healthy, living, structured humus rich soil.
Plants that are grown in bio-dynamic soil are allowed to grow and feed as nature intended, producing plants that are refined in flavor and nutritional value. This is then passed on to the animals that graze the pastures resulting in healthy livestock and great tasting food that is good for you.
