Controversial mink farm gets $4M in provincial loans
Government describes Silver Hill Fur Farm near O'Leary as 'state-of-the-art'
The fur farm is building a new site in Haliburton, near O'Leary.
After the project was given environmental approval late last year, some neighbours voiced concerns about potential groundwater contamination and odours.
The new facility, which government documents describe as state-of-the-art, is expected to house up to 10,000 mink.
The provincial Environment Department conducted an environmental assessment before approval was given for the new farm.
Environmental officials said they will monitor the farm once it begins operation.
