Christoph Simpfendörfer first General Secretary for Demeter International

The worldwide Demeter movement has the strengthening of Biodynamic work across the globe as a major objective.  To this purpose Christoph Simpfendörfer, a farmer from Stuttgart, has been nominated the first General Secretary for Demeter International.

For nearly 30 years Christoph Simpfendörfer has been responsible for Reyerhof, a diversified farm with dairy cows, wheat, potatoes and a wide range of vegetables on 38 hectares. For three years the farm has been carried by a CSA, but even longer by the large number of regular customers coming to the farm shop.

Since 1991 he has also been engaged in the various Demeter organizations in Germany, most recently as chair of the Supervisory Board. To unify all the tasks from advisory work to certification and marketing in one organization has been one of the main achievements over this period. He was also active for some years in the Board of Demeter International.

Christoph Simpfendörfer says, “I look forward continuing my support for Demeter and the Biodynamic movement in their dynamic and holistic development”.
