Edmonton, Ky. (November 13, 2015) – Cumberland Agricultural Management, LLC on Monday announced an investment of $3 million and the creation of 15 new jobs in Metcalfe County.
The company will construct a 12,000 square foot facility in Metcalfe County. The company will provide agricultural reclamation services to local farmers and will provide an environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional disposal methods. The new facility will be used to recycle reclaimed material into marketable products such as cosmetics, animal and pet feed, and leather goods.
“We are delighted to be able to support the groundbreaking of Cumberland Agricultural Management, LLC in Metcalfe County, “ said Roger Thomas, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy. “ Their agricultural reclamation services provide an invaluable service to the agricultural community. We are proud of their innovative and environmentally conscious methods, and we look forward to working with them as they continue to grow.”
Because this project has already been recognized as an important step to improving and preserving the water quality in South Central Kentucky, the Kentucky Soil and Water Conservation Districts are offering a rebate to farmers using the service.
Mark Antle, co-owner of Cumberland Agricultural Management, LLC said, “Cumberland Agricultural Management is excited to offer the cattlemen of south central Kentucky a solution to a potential problem for every cattle operation. We look forward to working with the community and growing our business right here in Metcalfe County. ”
