A new project is bringing new jobs to Muhlenberg county.
Farmstead Butcher Block is opening its first meat processing facility near Central City at the old Oxford mine location.
They will be looking to hire 25 people to work in the processing plant and retail shop as part of a $1.2 million investment in the community.
"Farmstead's leadership has expressed a desire to work closely with Kentucky Proud member farms and other local farmers. They expect to provide products for customers throughout the surrounding region, including Christian, Daviess, Hopkins, Logan, McLean, and Ohio counties," said Gov. Andy Beshear.
The company is accepting applications online.
