HandPicked People: Brie Aronson
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!
Brie Aronson became a big fan of real food from sources she could trust after developing food allergies. This newfound interest in real, whole food lead her all the way to Joel Salatin's Polyface Farms, where she cooks up delicious meals for the entire farm.
Brie is also a big fan of HandPicked Nation and the feeling is mutual – we're delighted to have her on board!
