Nell Hanssen

Certification Specialist

Spring Mills, Pennsylvania

Nell is a farmer and organic inspector who has worked in the sustainable agriculture and organic farming world for the last 20 years. Working with Demeter’s overseas traders has provided a broader perspective on the biodynamic movement around the world, and the diversity of people, products, and production systems. Outside of work, Nells loves gardening, playing music, birding, and botanizing. She also enjoys hiking, writing, cooking and preserving food, and working in my community to promote sustainable agriculture, water quality, and local foods. 

What is most inspiring or meaningful to you about biodynamics? I greatly appreciate the holistic, whole-farm approach of biodynamics, in which the farm is viewed as a living organism and as a functioning and active part of a local ecosystem.
