Proposed Turkey Farm Causes Controversy


-- A proposed turkey farm is causing controversy.

Jimmy Freeman says he lives just 60 feet from where the farm will be built on Lyon Landing Road. He's worried about the waste runoff that may filter onto his property.

Freeman says as a farmer himself he understands the need for the turkey farm, but he says it shouldn't be built on a swamp land.

"It needs to be in the proper location and the population center of Bladen County with proximity to all these homes and residents is not the place."

Freeman says if the plan goes through he will likely sell his property.
