Peanut roaster Hampton Farms plans to open a peanut butter production plant in Southampton County, creating 60 jobs.
Governor Bob McDonnell said Thursday that the company plans to invest $5.5 million in the facility.
Hampton Farms sells roasted in-shell peanuts throughout the U.S. and operates four roasting and productions facilities.
McDonnell approved a $200,000 grant from the Governor's Opportunity Fund for the project.
