History in Biodynamics

Lukas grew up on Maui, on the certified bio-dynamic and organic traditional CSA farm named Peppertree Farm. Early experiences on the family farm, along with the teachings of the more esoteric world of growing plants, led him to study many differing aspects of the craft, and to make thoughtful observations in order to cultivate his farming skills. An architect at heart, he seeks to solve the myriad and universal problems of growing and selling food.

Cooperative Growth

Lukas is a founding members of the Torch Lake Co-op, a non-profit agricultural producer cooperative. First serving on the steering committee and now sitting on the board, he is committed to putting the needs of farmers first and helping farming enterprises thrive along with his own. Cooperatives are unique in the business landscape. Allowing for the democratic control of our collective farming future is a powerful way to increase the value of our local food systems for the benefit of farmers and consumers alike.
