Susquehanna County Landowner, Star of Truthland
Who am I? My name is Shelly, I have been married to my husband Philip for 30 years. I am a mom to our four children, ages 20 – 25, and a grandma to our beautiful granddaughter. I am a teacher by trade and a dairy farmer by marriage and choice. We currently have four generations living on our place which has been continuously farmed for 122 years. We love our home and want to take care of it for future generations.
When we were told we had natural gas under our farm we felt very blessed. But what about all we heard about fracking and water problems? Then there was the movie Gasland; was what we saw in that film really true? We had to know, it was after all our livelihood and potentially our health at stake.
