Regenerative Agriculture

Yellow Barn Food is a blog that focuses on a regenerative form of agriculture known as Biodynamic. This holistic approach of farming or gardening involves a gardener and farmer integrating natural forces and substances into high-end sustainable food production.

The practice involves using manure to enliven the soil, improve nutrients and trace elements availability, and increase micro-flora in soil. It balances and strengthens the root systems of plants, especially fine root hairs. 

Work With Me

With manure, we foster soil structure, humus formation, and the capacity of soil to hold capacity. We also prepare silica to improve the plants’ ability to assimilate warmth and light from the sun. 

As a result, the plants develop better seeds and fruits with enhanced aroma, flavor, color, and quality of nutrition. 

Compost preparation makes use of biological processes in soil and in rotting plant matter to support the dynamic cycles of micro and macronutrients.

Why Biodynamics

This form of regenerative agriculture is popular for many reasons.

Biodynamic Preparations

  • Increase soil’s capacity to hold water; poor during floods and good in drought
  • Develops deeper soil and improves root depth
  • Enhances animal and plant health and yield; eliminates pests and weeds
