(VINCENNES) - Work could start this month on a new turkey processing plant in southwestern Indiana a company expects to open with about 350 workers.

Knox County Development Corp. Director Gary Gentry says the agency is scheduled to close next week on a deal for Farbest Foods to build the $70 million plant in a Vincennes industrial park.

Gentry says Huntingburg-based Farbest is moving ahead with the project after the company said in April that it needed to cut nearly $20 million in construction costs. He says Farbest reduced the plant's size by about 10 percent and is delaying some equipment purchases until it adds a second shift.

Farbest announced plans for the plant in December, saying it was expected to open in 2014 and eventually have perhaps 700 workers.
