Biodynamic agriculture is the natural evolution of organic farming. It was introduced in 1924 in the town of Koberwitz, near Breslavia, by a group of local farmers following the guidelines of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the theory of anthroposophy.
During the last seventy plus years or more many farmers from all over the world have adopted and perfected this methods.
Apart from a general vision of the universe as a single entity, earth and skies with man in the middle, whose work can actually benefit and revitalize the land, organic and biodynamic methods share a set of unwritten rules.
The farm is seen as a living organism whose various parts interact with each other in the aim of achieving the permanent fertility of the soil, through capable management of livestock, balanced fertilising and crop rotation, and without the use of man-made chemical products.
However using all the technology available to resolve problem situations.
One of the critical factors is the selection of animal and plant species, which is to be operated by the farmer with the full respect of the location and the climate; in a word it is vital to rediscover the value of indigenous varieties.
The beneficial effects of the biodynamic method are not limited to the fertility of the terrain, but are also felt by those who consume its products.
Each purchase sparks off a kind of positive chain reaction which involves farmers, farm workers, intermediaries, technicians, distributors, shopkeepers and restaurateurs, who all feel the economic benefits of the system and the value of being able to prepare and sell high quality products.
All the products of Nuova Cappelletta carry the trade mark Demeter to certify the biodynamic method and are also certified for organic agriculture by the CCPB, according to European, American (USDA/NOP) and the Japanese (JAS) standards.
