This is Isis’ FIRST EVER earth day!  We are so excited to be able to share this lovely day with you.  We always strive for the most responsible & sustainable options when it comes to farming, milling and packaging ISIS Biodynamic Product.  Here are a few ways ISIS “Gets Green” everyday!

  • Biodynamic Farms are responsible for maintaining their own life and vitality without pulling inputs from the outside.  Our farmers address the farm as a living organism and an entity within itself.  We like to describe this in a fun way.  If the world were to stop everywhere around the outside of a Biodynamic farm, that farm would still be able to function and sustain itself without any needs from the outside.  Pretty neat!
  • Biodynamic farms also emphasize water conservation!  Biodynamic farms strive for the development of soil organic matter and always encourage mulching where it can be practically applied.  These steps allow for the soil to act like a sponge and retain more water for longer periods of time.  When irrigation is necessary alternative pumping methods such as solar pumps, nose pumps, or wind pumps are always considered.
  • We are also proud to say that our packaging is 100% recyclable and certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. The sustainable forestry initiative program integrates the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees with protection of wildlife, plants, soils and water from renewable, responsibly managed forests.
