“He who is aching in every limb, worn out by the effort of a day of work – that is, a day when he has been subject to matter – bears the reality of the universe in his flesh like a thorn. The difficulty for him is to look and to love. If he succeeds, he loves the Real.”
-Simone Weil

About Brie Aronson

Brie Aronson came to Polyface from southern California. During college, she was diagnosed with food allergies and had to begin asking about the source of every single thing she put in her mouth. This led to an interest in all things food and she sought out a way to learn how it can be produced ethically and sustainably. Her desire is to help people shift their focus from counting calories, being intimidated by their kitchens, and being disconnected from the land to one that experiences the life-giving enjoyment of food. Having completed the internship in summer 2010, she now assists with the buying clubs and sales building, leads school tours of the farm, and will be the summer 2012 farm cook.

    How truly beautiful. Thank you for sharing this and reminding me of the value of being tired at the end of the day.

    I want to come visit Polyface and meet all of you. I want to volunteer for a few days and learn more. I have heard about your Field Days that are open to the general public as well as the talks Joel gives. I will start researching more ways to get in touch and if you know of any specific routes I should take, please let me know. Thank you!
