Jerry Brunetti founded Agri-Dynamics in 1979 with a vision to provide farmers with ecologically sound consulting services and holistic animal remedies that yield healthy, regenerative, and profitable outcomes for their operations. In 1999, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and given as little as six months to live without aggressive chemotherapy. He chose a holistic path of nutrition, detoxification and immune modulation and applied his vast experience with farming and animal nutrition to his own health, ultimately healing himself of a life threatening cancer episode. An honorary board member of the Weston A. Price Foundation, he is active in other community based organizations devoted to rebuilding local food systems and local democracy. In 2008, he received the Leadership Award from PASA and the Eco-Agriculture Achievement Award from Acres USA.
