Cooper Farms Buys Land

A major area farm­ing com­pany has bought some land in Williams County. The Bryan Times today reports that Cooper Farms has pur­chased 160 acres at the south­west cor­ner of Ohio 6 and County Road 7 in Williams County at auc­tion for $1.15 mil­lion.

The site is described as mostly open farm­land with woods and a sin­gle res­i­dence and barn on it.

Accord­ing to the paper, a spokesman for Cooper Farms said the com­pany has no imme­di­ate plans for the site, and most likely won’t do any­thing with it for at least a year.

Cooper Farms has oper­ated Net­tle Creek Farms, a poul­try hatch­ery on County Road A, since at least 1994.

Cooper Farms, Inc., is a pri­vate, family-owned agri­cul­ture and food pro­cess­ing busi­ness with major company-owned facil­i­ties in Van Wert, Fort Recov­ery, St. Henry and Oak­wood. It was founded in 1938 and was known as St. Clair Mills Inc. until 1988, when it changed its name to Cooper Farms.

The com­pany raises, processes and sells turkeys and turkey prod­ucts, and also grows chick­ens, egg lay­ers and hogs.

Cooper Farms employs about 1,700 people.
