Agribusiness is the number one industry in the State of Georgia and Harrison Poultry, a Georgia-based, family-owned and operated company, has a proven commitment to growing jobs within the communities where they are located for more than 60 years. HPI was referred to DaVinci Development to help them with their vision of expanding their company with a brand new state-of-the-art feed mill located in Crawfordville, GA.
After assisting with the project's site selection, the DaVinci Development team is serving as a development manager for their new mill under a design/build contract. The new, state-of-the-art facility is expected have an economic impact by creating over 230 jobs between Taliaferro and Barrow Counties - 12.5 % of Taliaferro County's total population - becoming a significant employer and growing the local economy. The facility will feature 165 new broiler houses, hatchery, and fully integrated processing plant - served by two miles of specially built railroad track. This new feed mill will be a leader in the industry, producing 210 tons of feed per hour to be transported via an adjacent CSX rail line at a receiving speed of 45,000 bushels per hour. The state-of-the-art mill will allow Harrison Poultry to reduce costs, dramatically increase efficiency and triple production capacity while adding hundreds of new and needed jobs and income to the community.
DaVinci Development's expertise can be applied to any project in any location. While this project presents unique rural challenges and benefits, our proven approach to successful development still applies.
