Welcome to the Josephine Porter Institute!

Founded in 1985, JPI is a national producer and distributor of biodynamic preparations – the enlivening forces that work dynamically within the soil, compost, and plants to ultimately provide us with healthier foods, healthier bodies, and a healthier planet.

The JPI farm and biodynamic preparation facilities are located on a beautiful 25-acre farm in Floyd County, Virginia. We strive to produce biodynamic preparations made from plants that we grow, or that are wild-crafted, organic, and chemical-free. All of our biodynamic preparations and Pfeiffer products are made from the highest quality natural materials available.

We also encourage and support the success of our customers and the biodynamic agricultural community by ensuring that sufficient quantities of top-quality biodynamic preparations are available, and by providing educational workshops and materials, free phone support, and the prompt delivery of product orders.
