Biodynamic agriculture seeks to foster a balanced productive cycle by producing all the necessary inputs on the farm so that each component (people, animals, plants, soil, compost, climate and landscape, etc) fulfills its different roles within the agricultural organism which is the farm itself.
When planning their activities throughout the year, farmers take astronomical factors into account. Some special preparations made from minerals and medicinal plants are prepared and used.
Biodynamic preparations are applied to the soil, plants and compost to provide them with vital forces so that production reaches its full potential, which will be reflected in its nutritional power, taste, color, aroma and conservation.
In addition to the applications of certain preparations, a special calendar is used to arrange the tasks according to the flow of energy radiated to our planet by different stars; thus, crops are in harmony with the natural cycles of the cosmos.
