Have you heard the buzz about biodynamic agriculture? Biodynamic farmers raise food with the big picture in mind—people, plants, animals and the environment. If you’re looking for new ways to eat in tune with nature, supporting biodynamic farms is easy…and delicious.
Like organic farmers, biodynamic farmers avoid synthetic chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and GMOs. In addition, biodynamic farmers focus on specific, farm-made solutions for pest control, soil health and fertility. They strive to reduce the volume of imported materials, reduce their impact on the environment and nurture the potential of the farm’s own resources, which include water and biodiversity.
Whole Foods Market® stores offer a bevy of biodynamic products—such as Yellow Barn Biodynamic Pasta Sauces and Delallo Biodynamic Whole Wheat Spaghetti—that can help you throw together a meal in minutes. In addition, here are a few of our favorite recipes with tips for incorporating biodynamic ingredients.
