Two new ag related businesses under construction in Walsh County are proceeding through the winter season. North Star Co-op in Park River and Remington Seeds soybean plant in Grafton are building plants that will increase efficiency and shorten loading times for farm trucks to the Park River facility. Remington Seeds will likely employ 10 to 15 people full-time plus another 10-15 on a seasonal basis. Both plants are expecting to be open in the new year.
