1.1 – Organic Products: they are safe products, grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, certified by an entity accredited by the Ministry of agriculture, according to the law 10,831 from 2003. They are grown in agricultural systems based on natural processes that do not harm nature, respecting the cultural integrity of the communities where they are being produced. The techniques used to produce organics include the use of composting, green manure, organic soil management and crop diversity. Those procedures guarantee the highest biological quality of products. Organic agriculture is the true way to produce healthy foods and guarantee the environment integrity and the consumer’s health.
1.2 – Biodynamic Products: They are products from biodynamic farming. Precursor to the organic farming, biodynamic farming has been developed since 1924. It is based on the principles of Anthroposophy, a ‘spiritual science’ introduced by Rudolf Steiner. In practice, biodynamic farmers pursue to understand all the possible relationships (dynamic) between the living beings (bio) present in their work environment. That includes the study of cosmic rhythm related to the Moon, the Sun and Planets, their interrelationships and influence in agriculture. The farmer seeks to transform his property into an integrated body (agricultural body), integrating all activities, like the human body, where all the organs are connected and interdependent. On biodynamic farming, every byproduct is reused, with minimum use of resources and inputs from outside the property. Biodynamic compounds are applied homeopathically into the soil, the composting and the plants. These compounds are made of medicinal herbs, manure and silica. They have healing properties that balance the soil-plant-animal-man system. The biodynamic products are known for their vitality and nutritional quality.
1.3 – Our Certifier: The Biodynamic Institute – IBD is a company located in Botucatu, São Paulo State, that inspects and certifies farming activities of organic and biodynamic products, processed or extractive.

Since then, it has sought to adapt to the ever-increasing demands of the developing market.
