The concept came to me about 35 years ago when we were setting up a family horticultural enterprise at Kuitpo. Our family researched many alternative farming approaches but decided to focus on biodynamic methods. Our aim was to practice sustainability (before the word was a catch phrase), and biodynamic practices can deliver this in organic, ecological, and ethical ways.
The coloured triangle image was based upon the methods and our understanding of what we started to practice at the time. The colours represent the 4 ancient elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The triangle represents the constant cycling and revitalisation of these elements.
The image represents our way of looking at farming systems. We take a holistic approach and our work practices promote biodiversity and natural ecosystems by integrating science and nature. Sustainable land management practices are an underpinning constant in our business.
