Welcome to The Butter Churn

Here you will find all the information, backstory, and current story about our store.

But First! The important info so you can find us:


10am – 6pm Monday thru Friday

9am – 4pm on Saturdays.

Closed Sundays.  Even though we could make buckets of money.  Because we know people want to shop after church.  But we all have families.        So shop on Saturday when we are open all day!!!


275 N. Division St.

Woodhull, Illinois 61490

We are on the “main street” of Woodhull.  Nestled between Genisio’s Bar & Grill and that brick building on the corner.  We are directly across the street from Farmer’s Bank and the Woodhull Locker.  

The store is set back a little  – but you can’t miss us.  (I promise this was on purpose! We have some plans for the future in that space)

If you are coming from 74 – you will take exit 32 towards Woodhull/Alpha.  Go right towards Woodhull.  Turn onto the main street (N. Division)

The Story Behind The Butter Churn

Across the country and unbeknownst to each other, two women were dreaming a similar dream. A dream of a small, local market that would sell fresh foods, meat, and produce to their community. For one of the women it was a dream that involved her childhood hometown, and her deep family roots. For the other […]

  2. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority
    of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write

  3. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough
    to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual
    appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also,
    the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!
