The real start to this label was in Berlin, Germany, one year earlier in 1927 and awarded a Trademark in 1928. However in 1941 Demeter no longer existed due to the Nazi Government terminating the Union for Biodynamic Agriculture. Reestablished after the Second World War and now known as Demeter International since 1997, the label is on each continent of Earth.
Biodynamic farmers foster a sustainable environment by working a biodiversity and ecosystem preservation with on-site composting, crop rotation, soil husbandry, livestock integration, no genetically engineered organisms and having a farm that is a "living holistic organism".
Not bad for an old label named after a Greek goddess, not bad at all.
