Welcome to Thrushwood Farms
Thrushwood Farms philosophy is very simple. It is to create a quality meat product that the Hankes family would be proud to serve their family and yours. For forty years, Thrushwood Farms has helped families with Making Memories Out of Meals.®
Thrushwood Farms Quality Meats, Inc. has been serving customers in west-central Illinois and beyond since its opening in 1978. Jim Hankes, along with his wife Kae began Thrushwood Farms after they moved to Galesburg. Jim graduated from the University of Illinois with a Masters in Meat Science and had various jobs in the meat industry before starting the business. Kae graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Home Economics education and worked as an assistant Home Economics Advisor before joining the business in 1979. In 2004, Doug graduated from the University of Illinois in Animal Science and after several internships decided to return home to the family business. 2006 was another significant addition to Thrushwood Farms with Jeff Hankes coming back to the family business. Jeff has his degree in Agricultural Education from the University of Illinois.
We would like to welcome you to our page and the families of Thrushwood Farms thank you for your business.
