The new meat processing facility will be located beside the Creek Travel Plaza off Jack Springs Rd in Atmore.
This $15 million state-of-the-art facility will be approximately 23,000 sq ft, with a retail storefront dedicated to both consumer and wholesale customers.
The facility will create around 15 new full-time positions for Escambia County, Alabama.
Operations plan to open harvesting at around 50 cattle per week and increase with demand – up to 125 per week. This increased production would create no changes to the design or flow of the facility.
The processing facility will initially focus on cattle, complimenting their existing cattle operations at PRF. Eventually the processing facility will have the potential to handle hogs.
