HandPicked People: Bri DeRosa
As we've built up our community here at HandPicked Nation, we have met some truly incredible farmers, ranchers, makers and thinkers in the real food movement. Which prompted the thought, why not share a little more about the real people of real food with our readers?
Welcome to another addition of HandPicked People!
Today, we're hearing from Bri DeRosa! Bri has been making us laugh and think about food ever since we found her terrific blog RedRoundorGreen.com. Bri wholeheartedly embraces feeding her kids real food, but she also has the wit to laugh at herself from time to time. Bri, we salute you.
