A mobile chicken processor that could help north country farmers expand their poultry production is expected to be in operation soon.

The North Country Regional Economic Development Council and North Country Pastured, the owner of the processor, will have a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the unit at 1 p.m. Thursday at 116 Rice Road, DeKalb Junction.

North Country Pastured was the recipient of a $130,000 state grant through the North Country Regional Economic Development Council.

Delivery of the unit took longer than expected because the company responsible for building it also makes equipment for the military, which took precedence.

North Country Pastured has estimated it could process 25,000 chickens in its first year and surpass that number in the future.
