Last month, the Chautauqua County Legislature approved the transfer of property that was the former Penn Empire site to Brigiotta's Farmland Produce & Garden Center, which the business will use to expand its operations. Tim Galbato, Brigiotta's spokesperson, said the six-acre site, at first, will be used to complement the whole fruit sales operation at its Fairmount Avenue location and the company's greenhouse business on Livingston Avenue. In the near future, however, the facility will be used to expand Brigiotta's wholesale produce operation by linking up with the railroad that travels next to the property. ''We're talking to the railroad company to put in a stop so we can bring in boxcar loads of potatoes for packing at the facility,'' Galbato said.

Tim Galbato, co-owner of Brigiotta's Farmland Produce & Garden Center, said the family is excited to take over the property and has established a three-year plan for development and use of the new site. "We were interested in the property a while back but the cost of clean-up was much more than we could do," he said. "We are thankful for the government assistance that made this a reality, and we will continue to work hard to grow our business at the new location." After initial clean-up at the Livingston Avenue site, the property will be used to expand the company's wholesale produce distribution business, which already boasts more than 2,000 customers throughout Western New York and Pennsylvania. And talks are already under way with railroad officials to utilize the tracks adjacent to the property to cut transportation costs for moving produce into and out of the area, a method that is expected to save the company 30 percent versus traditional trucking.
