“The building project has actually gone extrodinarily well. It is a very nice facility, and we’re excited about moving in. It’s going to be very condusive to the kind of work environement and work culture we’re trying to strive for.”

Although a few employees have moved onto different careers with the support of the Department of Agriculture, as many as 50 employees will carpool from the Topeka area daily, and some employees have even made a new home in the Manhattan area.
