CHRISTENSEN FARMS proudly displayed their new sign, marking the spot of the future site of their transportation terminal on December 11, 2014. The trailer washing facility will be located in the industrial park area in Appleton, Minnesota. Construction will begin this spring as soon as the ground thaws.

The truck wash will allow Christensen Farms to do a specialty cleaning of their transport trailers, enhancing their ability to sanitize trailers to keep their herds healthy. The facility will be staffed by three to four employees.
