MASON CITY, Iowa - A new $35M project that could bring around 50 new jobs could be coming to Mason City.

Mayor Bill Schickel announced Monday that Bushel Boy Farms, out of Owatonna, Minnesota, has proposed a new facility just south of Mason City on the Avenue of the Saints.

The business would produce locally-grown tomatoes that are distributed to businesses like Hy-Vee and Walmart, Schickel said.

The proposed project would be on 80 acres of land, and the city council will discuss Tuesday the possibility of a service road that the proposed facility would use.

We will have more on this story as it becomes available.
