PALESTINE, ANDERSON COUNTY; FREESTONE COUNTY - Sanderson Farms Inc. is halfway complete on a two-year timeline to bring a sprawling new poultry complex to Palestine.

Progress is on track and on schedule for the $124 million complex, which consists of a feed mill, hatchery, poultry processing plant and wastewater facility. The main plant and hatchery is being constructed in Anderson County and the feed mill will set up operations in nearby Freestone County.

The company first notified the City of Palestine in February 2013 of its intent to build facilities in the region, with an operations start date planned for January 2015.

The $17 million, 65,000-sf hatchery facility is under construction in Willow Creek Business Park off S. Loop 256 in Palestine, as well as the $75 million processing facility off US 79 S.

The plant is expected to bring more than 1,000 full-time jobs to the area, adding an annual payroll of more than $21 million to Anderson County.
