The mission of the Pfeiffer Center, founded in 1996, is to teach and spread awareness of the biodynamic method, which takes agriculture and land care beyond conventional notions of "sustainability" to demonstrate actual improvements in soil vitality and in the taste and nutritional quality of produce.
Our name honors Ehrenfried Pfeiffer, the pioneer of biodynamic agriculture in the United States, who came from Europe to give the first lectures on biodynamics in 1933, and lived and worked here from 1946 until his death in 1961.
The Pfeiffer Center garden's produce vegetables and flowers; also on the property are a small orchard (apples, pears, peaches and quince), berries, a greenhouse, a wood-fired bread oven, a dye garden, a self-serve seasonal farm stand, and an apiary. A full time, one year internship is available for individuals who want to broaden and deepen their understanding of organic sustainable agriculture and the biodynamic approach.
