Pigs and sheep, coming to town!

-A A +A

Pig and sheep farm, with processing plant coming to Chiefland! I guess big money talks, regardless of any consequences to the environment, right Gov. Scott?

Since 2014, work has been under way to bring to south of Chiefland, a pig/sheep farm, to process 50 head of livestock per day, and average of 5 per hour, growing to 100 head per day!

Those steaks and chops won’t be going to local tables. Instead going to a chain of restaurants and sports bars owned by billionaire businessman Frank Stronach who has been buying up large tracts of Levy County land in the past few years.

Under his Plum Spring, Sleepy Creek and Adena companies he’s been buying thousands of acres of land in North Central Florida, to raise cattle.

Stronach’s company in Chieflad has already received approval from Suwannee River Water Management District for this land, bought from (Andy) Andrews, for a large number of water permits needed to raise and process the meat.
