The South Dakota Farmers Union says it has broken ground on a new 8,400 square foot state office building.
The new building in Huron will house South Dakota Farmers Union staff along with the state office staff of the Farmers Union Insurance Agency and the South Dakota Farmers Union Foundation.
Construction will begin later this month, and the building is expected to be finished sometime next spring.
The current two-story building, completed in 1951, will be torn down once the new building is completed.
Members celebrated a groundbreaking on Thursday.
Farmers Union President Doug Sombke says he's been looking forward to the day for several years.
