Cherry plant completed

A new state-of-the-art cherry packing facility across from Duck Lake will come to life this weekend. 

Jealous Fruits announced Monday it has completed construction on the 140,000 square foot facility, which has been in planning and construction in various phases since the company acquired the site in 2015.

“The new plant is central to our various orchards, logistically accessible for shipping, and has easy customer and staff access,” Jealous Fruits said on Facebook.

The plant features 28 lanes of optical sorting equipment and can handle 18 tons of cherries per hour. There are three cold-storage rooms with 550 tons of capacity, administrative headquarters, retail shop and adjoining dorms to house 130 staff.

It is expected the plant will start packing fruit on about July 4.
