Homeopathy is a therapeutic remedy, which was already known t the Greeks and the Egyptians. It is based on the principle that “the similar cures the similar”. Any substance, either of mineral, vegetable or animal origin, administered to a healthy organism, induces in it the same symptoms which it cures in a sick organism.
The consequence of this is that if such a substance is administered in very tiny doses to an organism that has a particular pathology, the healing process is stimulated: the similar cures the similar.
About 200 years ago homeopathy was rediscovered by Samuel Hahnemann, and in 1924 was adapted to agriculture by Rudolf Steiner in his so-called biological- dynamic or biodynamic method.

Biodynamic agriculture is based on three fundamental principles:

  • the empowering of land fertility thanks to the correct dose of organic substance opportunely composted

  • the organisation of the farm as a true and real living organism whose different organs (land, water, seeds, garden, orchard, forest, pasture, animals, etc.) interact harmonically with each other under the guide of its farm head, the organizing conscience.

  • mankind indeed – this is the third aspect – takes care of the relationship between plants and the cosmos, choosing the right moment for seeding, treatments, pruning, the work on the land (i.e. according to the acgricultural-astronomical calendar).

In order to achieve this we use biodynamic products made of natural substances such as minerals, medical plants, manure, upgraded by homeopathic dynamisation.  
It is just like adding a turbine to a tube in which water flows: it speeds up the water and gives greater capacity and throw.
This method has three indisputable advantages:

  • absolute absence of residues in the earth and in the plants

  • minimal costs

  • absolute practicability
