After training in Germany and England, Clifford Kurz has a diverse background in biodynamic farming: dairy, beef, vegetables, and beekeeping. In the late 1980s, he was the field director for the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association. He helped conventional, organic, and biodynamic farmers find solutions to their agricultural problems out of a biodynamic approach. More recently, Clifford and his wife, Susan Kurz, built the Dr. Hauschka Skin Care import company from $1 million in sales to almost $20 million before they put the company into a holding company with no owners. Most recently, he sails, gardens, and tends to the recovery of the bees, while raising two teenagers.
