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.
