Good Things Await

Thursday, March 19
4:30PM - 6:05PM


Farmer Niels Stokholm lives in his farm with his wife Rita who works as his helping hand. The couple has been doing biodynamic farming for over 30 years. They have founded and managed the farm according to the idea that man and earth are fundamentally connected to the universe. Niels makes all the practical decisions in harmony with nature and in respect of the animals. These methods and beliefs in biodynamic farming yield some of the finest and most sought-after vegetables in the world. In spite of this, Niels has to battle against EU regulations and frequent animal welfare controls, in addition to fines and lawsuits, that threaten to close down the farm.
