One week into the first Biodynamic Food Fortnight, veteran biodynamic meat producers Ian and Denise Bell, of Heritage Prime Meats, explain what's wrong with supermarket meat Does anyone out there want to stop the world for a while, step back and take a look at what is going on? Well, you'd have a job on but if you succeeded in bringing the planet to a halt, would you expect to look into the night sky and see everything as normal? What could prepare you for the sight of the moon rushing by faster than Lewis Hamilton in his McLaren? Just a minute though - this is The Grocer, not Astronomer's Weekly. What's this got to do with food? Just about everything, actually. Our living earth is but a small part of a huge living organism and, just as your own gall bladder should not be considered in isolation from your other organs, so it is with Mother Earth and her relationship to the organic environment of the cosmos. Today's couch culture is a direct result of the erosion of the aesthetic and the nutritional quality of food, in concert with the deranged culture we've accepted from our dear supermarkets, themselves spawned by an earlier generation of weary-spirited humans. Industrialised synthetic farming is dependent on a dead nature from which full life cannot arise. Biodynamic farming, such as we practice here at Heritage Prime, is considered quirky only by those who have no hands-on experience of it. The population is shielded from truths, eating products of deliberately hidden provenance. Biodynamic food is an antidote to all that. Thanks to brilliant scientist and philosopher Rudolf Steiner, biodynamic farmers are obliged to take note of all things astral - or spiritual, if you like - when growing food. It is about the science of the spirit - a science that takes account of the "supersensible", or that which lies beyond what we can see in a crudely material way. Biodynamic farming is a genuine culture of the land, combining planetary influences and specialised natural preparations to assist nature to feed our plants, animals and us, in the form of vitality. The food produced ain't cheap, nor should it be. But get your priorities in order and issues concerning sustainability and climate change go straight to the top of the agenda. A farm in Germany, at the outset of conversion to biodynamic, had topsoil measuring one inch. After 10 years the topsoil on the same farm measured 14 inches. Global agribusiness, trying to inflict Frankenstein foods on us, cannot emulate such divine a feat as this. So come on farmers; take a good look at the heavens and go biodynamic.
