Andrea Bemis started her blog, Dishing Up the Dirt, as a way to document her life as a farmer and home cook. When she and her husband, Taylor, wanted to settle down, they moved to his family farm in Massachusetts.
Eventually, they wanted to start something for themselves, so Andrea and Taylor bought six acres in Parkdale, Oregon, which became Tumbleweed Farm. Through farming, Andrea found a love of food. She began by sharing recipes with her CSA, which grew into a book, Dishing Up the Dirt.
Now, Andrea is a mother with a passion for instilling an appreciation for food in her children. Her newest book, Let Them Eat Dirt, features simple, nutrient-dense foods perfect for the pickiest eaters.
