On a special episode of The Farm Report, Erin Fairbanks is joined by none other than Patrick Martins, founder of Slow Food USA, Heritage Foods USA and Heritage Radio Network. He's also the author of The Carnivore's Manifesto: Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat. The book features fifty ways to be an enlightened carnivore, while taking better care of our planet and ourselves. We have evolved as meat eaters, proclaims Patrick Martins, and it's futile to deny it. But, given the destructive forces of the fast-food industry and factory farming, we need to make smart, informed choices about the food we eat and where it comes from. Tune in as Erin and Patrick chat about the book, the inspirations behind it, and the goals it sets out to accomplish. From seasonal meat to sustainable food production, get a candid and insightful look at the future of food. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures. Music by Idgy Dean.

"Our greatest wish is that more farms produce more of America's food." [3:00]

"If you don't shop at five different stores for your food, you're probably not doing it right." [22:00]

"You can go to a food truck now and eat a dish as if you were at Jean Georges." [25:00]
