About Early’s:

Over 80 Years of Quality Food and Friendly Service

In 1925, Early’s was just a simple roadside honey stand under a big shade tree on U.S. Highway 31 in serene Spring Hill, Tennessee. Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills, we sold our rich golden honey during the summer and slow-smoked country meats during the winter. Lots of people traveling from the north to sunny Florida, and then back home, stopped to buy our delicious products. That’s how folks all over the country got to know Early’s.Eventually, a new interstate highway was built and routed most of our over-the-counter customers away from us. Because our product was the best they’d ever tasted, most of them called and asked us to ship baskets of goodies to them. This was Early’s introduction into the mail order business, and today we’re the oldest mail order house in the South! We’ve since shipped our products to presidents, heads of state, Supreme Court judges, NFL owners, stars, CEOs, and thousands of folks just like you. As we grew, we added jams, mixes, cheeses, nuts, and other sausages and country fixins. While we’re always looking for new product ideas and better ways to serve our customers, we won’t change the promise Mr. Early made to his customers when he first opened his doors…

“At Early’s you’ll always get the best quality product at a reasonable price, from the friendliest people in the world.”
