Jody Scheckter started his organic/biodynamic farm to produce “the best-tasting, healthiest food, without compromise” for himself and his family – and he applies that philosophy across the entire farm.
“To achieve this, we follow nature strictly, whilst utilising the latest scientific research, techniques and equipment” explains Jody Scheckter.
“To achieve a healthy, natural, environment, I believe there are two vital factors: firstly, biodiversity and secondly slow growing animals and plants. This begins with the soil.
Good Soil = Good Grass = Good Quality Animals = Better Tasting Food = Happy People!
Biodynamic and Organic
The 2,500 acres of Laverstoke Park Farm are certified as biodynamic by Demeter; the parkland is certified as organic by the Soil Association.
Biodynamic preparations are added to the compost and the land; planting follows the cycles of the moon as closely as possible in a British climate.
