La Chacra D’Dago - Dagoberto Marin Ludeña owns La Chacra D’Dago estate, which is located in Villa Rica in the Oxapampa Province within the Pasco Region of Peru. The 74 acres estate has been biodynamically cultivated since 2006. The Ludeña family also works with other local farmers to expand the biodynamic method throughout the region. Biodynamic farming began as a reaction to deteriorating soil and poor harvest and livestock conditions in the wake of increased chemical fertilizer applications in the 1920s. Emphasizing organic agricultural practices, in conjunction with synchronizing planting and harvest cycles to terrestrial conditions and celestial (especially lunar) movements, the philosophy attempts to promote ethical treatment of natural resources and harmonious human interaction with the natural world. The actions of humans, animals, and plant life are seen as interactive parts of a living system.
