Pike Veggie Grower
Promises 200 Jobs
At Hydroponic Plant
GREENTOWN —All Fresh Farms, LLC, an indoor hydroponic production and packaging operation that specializes in growing lettuce mixes, kales, and basil, will establish a new facility in Greene Township, Pike County, a move that is expected to create at least 200 new jobs within three years.
Pike County Commissioner Matt Osterberg, who is chairman of the Pike County Economic Development Authority, said that the plant could be in operation by Sept. 1 with 70 jobs openings to start, paying $12 to $15.
The existing building they will occupy is near Route 390, about 8 miles from I-84, he said.
“The innovation and technology are incredible,” Osterberg said. In keeping with the food industry trend, the salad mixes will be grown completely indoors. He said that is good for the environment because herbicides and pesticides won’t be necessary in the controlled environment inside a building.
“Today’s announcement of 200 new jobs coming to Pike County is another huge win for Pennsylvania,” Gov. Tom Wolf said last Thursday. “All Fresh Farms chose the commonwealth as the best location to support their business over other sites outside of the state.”
All Fresh Farms has purchased a 50,000-square-foot facility on 10 acres located at 115 Mozzette Road in Greene Township. The company plans to invest more than $3.4 million at the new site, with plans to double the size of the facility within the first five years of operation. In addition, All Fresh Farms has also pledged to create at least 200 new jobs over the next three years... for complete story, get this week's issue.
MILFORD — Although it has been publishing much, much longer, the Pike County Dispatch has been the newspaper of record for the County of Pike for more than 40 years. That means the Dispatch is the place to go to find out about public meetings, estate notices, bids, public hearings, real estate sales and transactions, and Sheriff sales.
The Pike County Commissioners listed the Dispatch as an official newspaper for legal notices during their opening meeting of 2014, and once again, during their annual reorganization meetings on the first business day of the New Year, most of the other municipalities in Pike County followed suit. So far, Milford and Matamoras Boroughs, and Westfall, Dingman, Delaware, Shohola, Blooming Grove. Milford and Lehman Townships have made it their business to have the Dispatch as an official newspaper.
So make it your business to keep up with all the news in Pike to print, including official business and legal notices from your town.
