Dagoberto Marin Ludeña owns La Chacra D’ Dago estate, which is located in the rural municipality of Palomar, in the large and geographically diverse Junín Region of central Peru. The 35 hectare estate has been biodynamically cultivated since 2006. Biodynamics surpasses organic agricultural practices by viewing the farm not simply as a place to avoid synthetic chemicals. Instead, agriculture is seen as a whole living organism whose health is a matter of balance, achieved through specific planting and harvest cycles that follow certain patterns, particularly celestial (especially lunar) movements. The philosophy attempts to promote ethical treatment of all natural resources, and the actions of humans, animals, and plant life are seen as interactive parts of a living system.During harvest time, the Ludeña family employs 30 pickers, all carefully calibrated to the differences in cherry ripeness between the various cultivars on the farm. Post harvest, freshly picked cherry is floated in a siphon tank to eliminate floaters and then depulped, fermented, washed, and sun-dried, before being stored on property.
