WholeStone Farms will hold a groundbreaking ceremony this Friday for its $200 million expansion project to its Fremont facility.


The new expansion offers employees a new cafeteria, locker room area and office layout for its more than 1,400 employees. Phase two of the project will involve updates to the processing floor.
