About Andrew Beedy
Deep roots: biodynamic farming is in Andrew's blood.
To say that Biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming are in Andrew Beedy’s blood is a bit of an understatement. Born on a Biodynamic dairy farm in Kimberton, Pennsylvania, his family moved to Chilham, England, where he was raised at Chilham Castle. He attended Perry Court Steiner elementary school, which was attached to a large mixed Biodynamic farm, and spent his off hours as a teen working at the Ripple Farm Organics horticultural farm in Kent.
Agricultural design, consulting & management.
In 2008, Andrew headed to California to become the Farm/Estate Manager at Quivira Vineyards & Winery, a Biodynamic winery estate in the idyllic Dry Creek Valley appellation of Sonoma County. Here, he spent four years developing the expansive gardens of the estate, creating a new source of visitor traffic to the winery and helping to put Quivira on the world map as a working Biodynamic estate. Andrew also had the opportunity to work alongside the late Alan York, a prominent Biodynamic consultant. (Learn more about Alan York.)
From there Andrew headed to Southern California to head up a large Biodynamic farm. Here he completed the farm's Biodynamic and Organic certification process; designed and built a showpiece 1-acre kitchen garden; designed and installed multiple pollinator habitats and drought tolerant landscapes; developed a 30-acre parcel where a worn avocado grove was removed and replaced with newly designed terraced olive and avocado groves; and developed large scale hay operation.
In 2015, Andrew returned to Sonoma County, and now designs farms and gardens and consults with a variety of prominent Organic, Biodynamic and sustainable farms and gardens, nationally and internationally.
