Press Release: Jan. 12, 2022
Meade County Fiscal Court and Harrison County, Indiana, in partnership with the Harrison County Economic Development Corporation and Meade County/Brandenburg Industrial Authority, are partnering to develop a multi-million dollar regional grain elevator facility. This new facility will be for the acceptance of wheat, soybeans, and corn from local farmers. The facility is expected to save farmers in the region truck freight costs and time by delivering to a facility closer to home.
The parties have identified a potential site and are in exclusive discussions with ADM, a third-party operator, to potentially oversee the grain elevator. The parties are entering the design phase of the process and hope to obtain the necessary permits and begin construction of the facility in 2022.
