Lynchburg, VA

Thanks to a $2.25 million loan from Virginia Community Capital, Seven Hills Food Company will be expanding its Lynchburg plant and increasing its staff. Seven Hills is a 2-year-old wholesaler of pastured, Virginia family farm-raised Angus beef. The plant connects local meat producers to local meat consumers. “The meat trade is dying as it’s being consolidated, so we’re creating a place for people who are interested in advancing in the meat-cutting trade and… creating more access for restaurants who have been limited in their ability to purchase because of the lack of availability,” said owner Ryan Ford. “This [loan] will allow us to continue growing our business to achieve our goal.”
