Although company officials did not have precise dimensions for the new facility, they say it would handle 110,000 bushels of soybeans per day and would be staffed by 38 full-time employees. The project is believed to be in excess of $60 million, says LisaGraham-Peterson, a spokeswoman for Harvest States. The project also has received all the necessary permits and has notified the city of Fairmont and the state of Minnesota that it will proceed.
