From Bill & Barbara Steele...
Our mission at Cowhorn is to produce the best quality produce and wine that we can. At the same time, we have stewardship of this land and consider it our responsibility and privilege to foster its health and strength. In all ways, we choose to preserve and restore the natural ecological balance between plants, animals, humans and elements.
We believe that the measure of success lies in our ability to consistently adhere to our principles and the principles of Biodynamic® farming. Simply put, our principles are to revere and uphold the health and natural balance inherent to the Earth by providing support for soil food web and the complex web of human and stellar interaction.
Cowhorn is a Demeter certified farm and winery. The Biodynamic® farming method is a holistic system in which all the elements of the farm are important. In essence, the growing of plants is a transfer of energy from all earthly and cosmic sources to a single point – the plant. When energy from the soil, air, sun and stars rearranges itself, a dry, hard, lifeless seed springs green. Biodynamic® farming uses methods to enhance the energetic plane in the farm, or in other words the transfer of energy between forms. As these dynamic forces are strengthened, the dynamic and life-giving properties of the plant and earth are strengthened.
Come to Cowhorn, taste and experience!
