Ag leaders and community members from Cut Bank and beyond enjoyed a ground-breaking ceremony on Friday.
Pardue Grain broke ground on a $6.5-million dollar project to upgrade its pulse crop processing facility.
The new facility will create 12 full-time jobs.
Rogers Sammons of Pardue Grain said, "Now we're going to be able to operate with a food-grade facility and be able to do it under the food-safety standards with excellent traceability."
The facility will allow farmers to sort, size, bag, and clean their products.
