As so many of you know, we have been in the throes of a pipeline battle for the past two years.  Our family is fighting the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline and first learned about it when we received a phone call and then letter expressing interest in surveying on our land for a natural gas pipeline (September 2014).  Since then, we’ve been studying, researching and learning more and  more about the fossil fuel industry, which includes “natural” gas (it’s not very natural how it is extracted via Hydrolic Fracturing – AKA Fracking  google it to learn more).

There are less than two weeks left for the public to share comments to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which makes the decision for whether the power of eminent domain is given to the pipeline company and construction rights.  As a family, we decided to notify, you, our farm customers of this deadline and ask you to consider submitting comments.  If you are grateful for Four Corners Farm and our striving for sustainability and restoration of land, then please express your thoughts as to why we do not need or want this destructive pipeline to be approved.  The consequences of approval and construction would be devastating for our family’s land AND our farm business.  We believe we wouldn’t be able to continue doing what we’ve been working so hard at for the past 5 years if the pipeline is pushed through our property.

So we ask for you to sincerely consider writing comments and expressing your opinion about the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline. Information is below in how to submit your letter. You can also send copies of your letter to state legislators, the VA Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ),and any other agencies or officials… also feel free to email us a copy of your comments!
