In 1994, introduced its Nine Step Environmental Balancing System, with the mission to educate our global community about the values of nutrient dense farming and its effect on our health.

At the core of the system, is a deep understanding of the interrelationship between Soil, Plants and Animals and their cause and effect on one another. This 9 Step Environment Balancing System is the outcome of many years of research and field trials by Mr. Anderson and a team of world-renowned experts.

Through a specific balance of primary, secondary and trace elements and microorganisms, nutrient rich soil is “grown” as the ideal environment for the growing crops.

The first example and namesake Hidden Valley Ranch located in Corral de Tierra, California has proved the ideal test ground for the Balancing System.

The farming methodology used, in addition to being organic, revitalizes and restores the phyto-elementary structure of the plants by revitalizing and restoring the soil it which it grows. A plant with proper phyto-elementary structure offers the proper nutrition, more easily assimilated by the human body. Nutrient dense farming practices maximize the amino acids, enzymes, proteins, vitamins, minerals and phyto-elements in the food.

“The best farmers are those who are best able to perceive what Mother Nature does in a natural environment and replicate it in their fields.”
– John S. Anderson

Hidden Valley Ranch is committed to all aspects of sustainability including preservation of biodiversity and native habitat around the cropping zone, companion planting and seed-saving.
