Kurt Künzi, born in Switzerland, scientist, phytotherapist and also plant breeder, began to experiment with cultivating selected sea buckthorn varieties in the late 1980s. He had always been fascinated with its extraordinary properties and potential of antioxidants and he knew what a of a healing power plant the Seabuckthorn is, and which vitamin complexes they have. Selection and breeding of the most suitable varieties is a complicated process, which takes time and patience. Kurt eventually moved his biodynamic farming operation to San Mario in Bibbona, Italy, precisely in Tuscany near the sea side from Livorno where with his family he began a great intensive time to go on.
