INDEPENDENCE — Local and state officials celebrated the grand opening of a new meat processing facility in Independence last Friday, July 21. The new facility, River Ridge Meats, will be used to create value-added products with locally-raised, grass-fed beef.
According to an announcement regarding the project last October, the River Ridge Cattle Company invested $2.1 million in this project, which will create 11 new jobs for the area. Grayson Natural Farms partnered with River Ridge to complete the construction of the new facility.
