A new Montague Farms soybean processing facility in Windsor, Va., celebrated its grand opening on Friday (May 16, 2007). The plant will sort, clean and bag or bulk load soybeans for natto, tofu, and other products that are popular in Japan and other Far East nations.
Contract growers in southern Maryland, Virginia and northeastern North Carolina produce soybeans for Montague Farms. The new Windsor plant is near the shipping facilities of three major ports - Norfolk, Portsmouth and Newport News.
In honor of the company's longtime association with its Japanese customers, a Japanese cherry tree was ceremonially planted at the grand opening. Virginia's Secretary of Agriculture Robert S. Bloxom was keynote speaker.
