HUBBARD FARMS ANNOUNCE — 40 NEW JOBS and $20 MILLION UPGRADE TO WALPOLE OPERATIONS

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Hubbard Farms. Oliver Hubbard graduated from the New Hampshire Agriculture College in 1921, and began his commercial poultry business in Walpole. From 1921 up to the acquisition by Merck in 1974, it was a family company. Benefitting from the sale were many non-profits around the State. In Walpole, the Walpole Foundation was formed. We have the work of the Foundation to thank for the preservation and restoration of the “downtown” village to its splendid 19th century appearance. As this year evolves, the CLARION hopes to profile this Walpole institution.

Yesterday the CLARION received a copy of a recent press release from Hubbard. It starts:

USA – Hubbard® has announced plans to expand and upgrade its Walpole, NH, US, Research and Development (R&D) operations. Representing an investment of $20 million, the project will mean an increase in capabilities and capacity, as well as improvement in performance, biosecurity and innovation, along with bird health and welfare. Work will commence immediately, with completion slated for mid-2022. When finished, the expansion will bring approximately 40 new jobs to Walpole and Cheshire County.

Follow the CLARION for more information as the expansion and upgrades begin.

And, when you see a member of the Hubbard Family, say “thank you.”
