Commercial creamery to be developed in Dinwiddie County
- March 19, 2018
Richlands Creamery LLC plans to invest $1.7 million creating a commercial creamery in Dinwiddie County.
The project is expected to add 17 jobs during the next three years.
The creamery will be located at Richlands Dairy Farm, a commercial dairy and agritourism destination near Blackstone.
As part of this project, Richlands Creamery will purchase all its agricultural supplies from Virginia farmers, totaling nearly $1 million.
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services worked with Dinwiddie County to secure this project.
Gov. Ralph Northam approved a $20,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund, which Dinwiddie County will match with local funds.
