NEW HOLLAND, Pa. — Homestead Nutrition held an open house Aug. 27 at its new building.
The location contains nearly 28,000 square feet of mainly warehouse and light manufacturing space.
The company, owned by the Weaver family, had been operating out of the family’s home farm with two satellite warehouses.
Homestead moved into the former garment factory in January after a month of renovations. Gina Lusk, manager of finance and marketing, said she was pleased that the company could bring new life to a vacant local building.
For the project Homestead received a 15-year, $550,000 loan at a 0.75% reset rate from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority.
SlateHouse Realty, Truist Bank, Acuity Advisors and CPAs, and Gibbel Kraybill & Hess assisted with the transaction.
As part of the open house, which continued Aug. 28, the company presented a donation from the local ag community to CrossNet Ministries.
