Virginia: Shenandoah Valley Organic to create 110 new jobs in Harrisonburg
The new facility will increase production capacity and retail packaging, allowing for more product availability in leading grocery stores across the United States. Virginia successfully competed with West Virginia for the project, which will create 110 new jobs.
Founded by sixth generation farmer Corwin Heatwole, Shenandoah Valley Organic is committed to promoting and protecting generational farming by partnering with independent family farmers to responsibly raise organic chicken. By shifting decision making and ownership back to the hands of farmers, the business model creates a sustainable livelihood for generational family farmers.
Headquartered in the picturesque Shenandoah Valley, every product is traceable back to the nearly 70 family farms.
The company is eligible to receive benefits from the Major Business Facility Job Tax Credit for new, full time jobs created. Funding and services to support Shenandoah Valley Organic’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
