Demeter Certification, Biodynamic Farming, Regenerative Agriculture: Primarily, this is a practice in which the farmer focuses on healing the land by nurturing it.

While all of the organic requirements for certification under the National Organic Program are required for Biodynamic certification, the Demeter standard is much more extensive, with stricter requirements around imported fertility, greater emphasis on on-farm solutions for disease, pest, and weed control, and in-depth specifications around water conservation and biodiversity.. (demeter-usa.org).

Improvements: the property has an old set of cattle pens and two small sheds.
