Essentially, Bio-Dynamics is a chemical free regenerative agriculture that produces both healthier food and soil. It has been called an advanced organic method of farming.

Soil is developed and then maintained using appropriate land management practices that are in harmony with nature. In Bio-Dynamics the method is designed biologically to begin the life of the soil and plant. Plants feed through Humus the natural process in the active developed soil. The soil cares for the plants as opposed to the artificial direct feeding of the plant. Bio-Dynamic farming was brought to Australia in 1951.

Bio-Dynamic agriculture is a form of alternative agriculture it includes various esoteric concepts drawn from the ideas of Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) Initially developed in 1924, it was the first of the organic agriculture movements. It treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives.

Bio-Dynamics emphasizes the use of manures and composts and excludes the use of artificial chemicals on soil and plants. Methods unique to the Bio-Dynamic approach include its treatment of animals, crops, and soil as a single system, its use of traditional and development of new local breeds and varieties. Some methods use an astrological sowing and planting calendar. Bio-Dynamic agriculture uses various herbal and mineral additives for compost additives and field sprays.

As of 2019, Bio-Dynamic techniques are used on roughly 202,054 hectares in 55 countries and growing.Non Bio-dynamic Growers are starting to implement Bio-Dynamic methods like the methods of cultivating grapevines have been taken up by several notable vineyards. There are certification agencies for Bio-Dynamic products, most of which are members of the international Bio-Dynamic standards group Demeter International.

The Bio-Dynamic principle emphasizes that humans have a responsibility for the development of their ecological and social environment which goes beyond economic aims and the principles of descriptive ecology. Crops, livestock, farmer, and the entire socioeconomic environment form a unique interaction, which Bio-Dynamic farming tries to actively shape through a variety of management practices. The prime objective is always to encourage healthy conditions for life, soil fertility, plant and animal health, and product quality.
