BIODYNAMIC AGRICULTURAL PERSPECTIVE The biodynamic farming activities can be refined creating a bigger role for each component: Olives: The olive groves have proven themselves again this year with a very good production. The confidence that the result has been achieved through the 11 year biological-dynamic method and the loving attention in the developed ‘company-organism’ gives confidence for the future. We pay even more attention and care to the existing centenarios (the hundred-year-olds), new plantings and the far-flung of the company to catch overdue maintenance in terms of tree care. The production can therefore still increase, without significant additional costs. The harvest and the post-harvest are technically optimal and contribute substantially to the unique product quality of our Demeter certified olive oil. Vegetable garden: This concerns the market garden, where, in addition to vegetables, herbs and (small) fruit, more product processing can take place. Regional sales via CSA subscriptions are possible. In combination with our own olive oil, therapeutic products can be made such as St. John’s oil, Calendula, CBD & CBG hemp oil and almond oil etc. Sheep: sheep farming is given a new impulse, because the herd is an integral (grazing & manure production) and an inspiring part of the company organism and is inextricably linked to it. The natural ‘living’ cycle within the company requires closeness. The company is open to landscape, biotopes, atmosphere and the cosmos. Bees: BD beekeeping by Jose Pires Veiga Seed: For Living Seeds Sementes Vivas S.A. Demeter certified seed is grown on contract. Fruit: Planting substantially more cherries, almonds, apricots & blueberries and 0.5 ha of grapes is advisable. Viticulture: The viticulture gets more status. Both terraces with grapes are expanding. The location is ideal, the availability of irrigation, by the ‘exposure’ (morning sun) much and much ‘terroir’. The wine production and of course aguardente. All items for wine production are locally cheap available..
