For the past 10 years Homeopathic Farm Support has been helping farmers get established in homeopathic use on their farms. The fact that the original farmers that started with Homeopathic Farm Support 10 years ago are still the clients of Homeopathic Farm Support indicates that they are getting measurable results that work for their farm and animal healthcare needs.
Homeopathic Farm Support is able to help you with the introduction to homeopathy to your farm. Homeopathic Farm Support offers an exceptional telephone service that is operated by qualified homoeopaths who specialise in homeopathy for the farm. This telephone service is favored by our farmers during calving season when things go crazy and they want reassurance of the appropriate homeopathic treatment they should be using, or by farmers who want quick advice on whatever is happening on their farm for the animals or for their own healthcare needs.

Peter Bacchus
30 Bennett St Paeroa
Ph; 862 7929
Peter Bacchus provides consulting services and education for farmers wishing to take a biological approach. This includes soil testing using Brookside Laboratories, recommendations for balancing soil biology and minerals; troubleshooting, particularly for pest and weed problems; and using biodynamic preparations for optimising plant and animal health and production. The particular issue I wish to address is the hard winter spring [2010]. Winter lacks summer sunlight that brings growth with complex sugars and proteins. Part of this solution is good hay and the other is the use of the Biodynamic preparations including the cow's horn quartz which is made during the summer to capture the effects of the summer's sun to use as needed.
