Construction is underway at Hillandale Farms’ new facility east of Hicksville.
The Crescent News reports that although the rough winter we had last year, along with the extremely wet spring, slowed the beginning of the construction project, it is still on target to be fully operational next year.
The facility under construction on Rosedale Road, will be a hen-laying facility. Hillandale Farms is one of the leading suppliers of fresh eggs in the United States.
The $85 million investment is expected to create 109 jobs. Phase 1 will have two million hens, producing 125,000 dozen eggs a day.
Plans call for the farm to eventually grow to four million hens, laying 250,000 dozen eggs a day.
The company is hiring now.
