Patrick Martins is a farmer’s best friend. Soon after founding Slow Food USA in 2000, he realized that farmers raising quality heritage-breed animals needed a robust distribution system if they were to compete. His company, Heritage Foods USA, which he started in 2002, now supplies high-quality, humanely raised, heritage meats to the nation’s top restaurants. He has signed on to our campaign because he understands how  fracking threatens the health of the animals his farmers so lovingly tend. Read more about Patrick in this Esquire magazine profile, and join him in our fight against fracking by writing to Governor Cuomo and telling him you don’t want our farms fracked!
