RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Gov. Terry McAuliffe says separate cheese production and poultry processing facilities will be built in Albemarle County.

McAuliffe said Thursday that Kelly Turkeys USA LLC will invest $1.4 million in its first U.S. poultry processing facility, creating 33 jobs.

McAuliffe also says Ewes Guys LLC will do business as Twenty Paces and invest $321,000 in a cheese facility at Bellair Farms. The facility will employ seven people and produce high-end cheeses and meats for restaurants and specialty retailers.
