"We raise black and red angus cattle. We also produce natural gas - it's how we make our living." - Keith Burgett, Farmer

Keith has owned his farm for 30 years. With six active natural gas wells on his land, he can now grow the size of his farm, modernize his equipment and even send his grandchildren to college - all while protecting the health of the land and groundwater.

In many rural communities where economic development has lagged behind, natural gas development is breathing new life into family farms and ensuring these businesses will continue to thrive for the next generation.Learn why Keith Burgett decided to lease his land for natural gas production.
