Beautifully Designed, Inspired By Nature
In 2002 Creme de la Crop started growing organic produce for the community on their seventy-acre, family farm. That passion continues through our Community Supported Agriculture Program. Now the operation provides a wide range of locally produced and small-batch goods, in an on-site farm store. Handcrafted Candles, Skincare, and Soaps are made in-house with the finest ingredients available. We simply share with you what we love.
We are an on-farm CSA just south of Phoenixville, PA. We started in 2002 with a mission to provide our community with naturally grown, pesticide free food and to create a farm that members could call their own.
We harvest most of the share but also have beautiful U-pick gardens where members can pick flowers, herbs, small fruits, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, beans and peas.
It is our hope that our farm creates an appreciation for the value of productive farmland in suburban Philadelphia.
SPACE on Ryder Farm is a nonprofit residency program and organic farm located on the grounds of a 224-year-old family homestead in Putnam County, New York, just an hour north of New York City. SPACE’s mission is to create an environment singular in its ability to invigorate artists and innovators and their work, and to contribute to the sustainability and resourceful preservation of one of the oldest organic family farms on the East Coast.
In addition to the broader mission of biodynamic agriculture, the mission of the Oregon Biodynamic group is threefold:
1. The group’s primary mission is to make high-quality biodynamic preps to help heal the earth and humanity. We make these preparations available to anybody for purchase.
2. Secondly, we strive to educate ourselves and the broader community by sponsoring conferences, hosting open houses, studying together, and networking with and supporting other groups that have similar missions.
3. Thirdly, we actively grow and nourish a community; the rhythmical, meaningful work we undertake in our yearly cycle of meetings builds and strengthens friendships and helps foster the growth of biodynamics across space and through time.
– Make quality BD preparations annually
– Store and distribute preparations regionally
– Provide educational opportunities for people to learn more about biodynamics
– Network with and support other BD groups
– Continually train one another so that the group’s success is not overly dependent on a small number of experienced individuals
The Biodynamic Association (BDA) is a nonprofit association of individuals, groups, and organizations who are committed to rethinking agriculture through healthy food, healthy soil, and healthy farms.
Founded in 1938, the BDA is considered to be the oldest sustainable agriculture organization in North America. Biodynamics was developed in the early 1920s by the Austrian philosopher and social reformer Rudolf Steiner. Steiner is considered one of the pioneers of the organic farming movement and biodynamics is considered by many to be the most advanced and holistic form of organic farming and gardening on the planet.
Over the past 77 years, biodynamic practitioners have played a key role in the renewal of agriculture—helping pioneer the early organic farming movement; inspiring the work of Silent Spring author Rachel Carson; piloting the first community supported agriculture (CSA) programs; and demonstrating how to bring health and flavor back into our food.
