Well Said

The economics of small scale farming is not a drive for economic growth at all costs, concentrating wealth and high investment, increasing the gap between rich and poor.

It is on the contrary, the economics of cooperation, of participation, of greater equality and the building up of a million small achievements.

– Barbara Ward (Lady Jackson), acceptance speech as the National Audubon Medalist, 1973 National Audubon Society’s Annual Dinner.

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.
