New Beef and Pork Processing Facility Coming to Williamson County

MARION – There’s some good economic news coming out of Williamson County.

Saline River Farms, LLC is planning to build an 83,000 square foot USDA Beef and Pork processing facility in eastern Williamson County.

According to a press release, the facility will be located at 9032 Route 166 in Creal Springs.

Williamson County was in competition with a site in Kentucky for the project as part of the USDA’s efforts to increase capacity and diversify processing facilities across the United States.

The company will provide wholesale beef and pork processing services, consumer beef and pork processing services, direct to consumer mail order meat distribution, and will have an on-premises retail store. It will distribute product under several different labels.
