Mary Cleaver owner of The Green Table and The Cleaver Co. started her business 30 years ago out of her conviction “that the best foods are grown, tended and harvested within one day’s drive of your table.” Her website features a section on her sources, some of which lie atop the Marcellus Shale Formation. “The evidence is clear,” says Mary: “Fracking can potentially devastate our food shed and water supply, and irrevocably harm our farmland and the hard working people who grow and raise our food.  As a food professional who cares deeply about the safety of our food and the health of those who eat and produce it, I urge our elected officials to ban fracking in New York State.”
