The company that sparked outcry from some citizens in Nash County has purchased land there, but that doesn't mean operations at the location are a done deal.
Sanderson Farms Chief Financial Officer Mick Cockrell says his company has purchased 26 acres of land at the intersection of Highways 97 and 58.
The company is considering building a poultry hatchery on the land.
Cockrell says the company is looking for a site for its second plant, but they have not determined a location.
He says if its not put in Nash County, then they will probably not put the hatchery on the newly purchased land.
