Biodynamics Takes Root
“Biodynamic” agriculture looks very similar to organic agriculture—similar, that is, until a farmer buries manure-filled cow horns to harness cosmic rays. But biodynamic agriculture is not simply a hobby of the lunatic fringe; it’s a growing trend among farmers and vintners who see it as the “Rolls-Royce of organics.”
So what IS biodynamics? Who’s doing it? And is there any science to back it up? Maggie Fazeli Fard takes us behind the scenes for a hands-on look at three California farms where biodynamics is a way of life—cow horns, sheep skulls, and all.
