Thrushwood Farms is in the process of adding 30,000 square feet of production and warehouse space to their current 27,400 square foot facility. The addition will consist of offices, meeting space, production capacity, and warehouse storage. The expansion will provide the needed resources to develop innovative shelf stable meat snacks for their brand and their private label customers. A social on the evening of August 22 will be planned in Galesburg. The tour will take place the morning of August 23 followed by lunch and an IAMP Board meeting.
