Hōhepa Hawkes Bay - Biodynamic Centennial Celebration Day

Main Road, Clive, Napier

Celebrating 100 years of Biodynamic Agriculture

This year marks one century of the international biodynamic movement, with Hōhepa Hawke’s Bay being the longest-certified biodynamic farm in operation in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Biodynamics is a method of organic agriculture that re-uses on-farm waste, meaning low impact on the environment, exceptional quality of produce and animal welfare. Based on the teachings of Dr Rudolf Steiner, ‘a farm’ is viewed and understood as a whole living organism with each activity being interconnected.

We plan to commemorate Biodynamics’ 100-year milestone with the whole community through a day of celebration on Friday the 3rd of May and we invite you to be part of this with us.
