Farbest Foods Job Fairs Begin Tuesday



With construction running ahead of schedule, Farbest Foods will begin production at its new Vincennes turkey processing plant in December.

Ground was broken for the new 227-thousand-square-foot facillity in August of last year.
It will initially employ some 300 people.

The company also has completed construction of a feed mill in Bruceville in Knox County that will employ up to 30.

The company has invested nearly $75 million in the Vincennes plant; approximately $20 million in the Bruceville milling facility; and about $54 million in the creation of 60 new turkey-growing farms.

An additional 40 turkey-growing farms will be needed when the company launches a second shift.
