Sacred Cows

Taking another step forward on our biodynamic path, last November two lovely cows joined our farm, a 14 year old Jersey who we have named Tara (Hindu for star) and a new calf named Nayan (Hindu for eyes). The names, when put together as Nayantara, mean the star of my eyes, perhaps the English equivalent to "apple of my eye" or "my favourite one".

As part of the biodynamic philosophy we use manure from lactating cows to make our cow pat pits and preparation 500. With Tara, we are now able to do this with our own cow that is grazing on our biodynamic land. They have brought a wonderful spirit to this place, enlivening it with their presence.
