Third party Demeter Certification

 

Demeter certification is a regular inspection and review process according to the International Demeter Biodynamic Standard   (https://demeter.net/certification/standard/) which is carried out by a local Demeter accredited certification officer.  

 

In order to be certified by Demeter the farm must first be certified organic by a Demeter recognised organic certification organisation.

 

The first step to Demeter certification is to enter a conversion period. 

If the farm has already been fully certified to organic standards for at least three years, conversion to Demeter usually takes a year.  If the farm is starting without organic certification this usually this takes three years.

 

A conversion plan is developed with a Demeter recognized advisor (https://demeter.net/services/advisory/) who will help with the conversion
