The interest in the Sulphur River Eastern Turkey Cooperative has grown according to Steve Favre of Riverview Farms in Lake Creek, Texas, who is spearheading the project.

“The project has been received well by the community in both Delta and Lamar Counties,” reports Steve Favre. “The cooperative has grown from 15,000 acres before to over 22,000 acres and still growing today.”
