THE BIODYNAMIC FARM
Agriculture in Service of the Earth and Humanity
Bankrupt farmers, erosion of topsoil, and poor food quality owing to pesticides, hormones, and other additives - these are the well-known realities of the modern crisis in farming. This problem is the outcome of the limited vision of conventional methods and a system that focuses exclusively on quick results and profits. The need for change is clear, and Koepf provides a vast array of research data and results, as well as many helpful details on animal feeding, crop rotation, diseases, pests, and fertilizing. He shows that the biodynamic method of farming and gardening is an alternative that can turn farming around.
This is an essential reference for all farmers who are unsatisfied with conventional methods and for gardeners who wish to improve the quality of life around them as well as the food they serve their families.
