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, Erskine Early sold 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 their delicious products. That’s how folks all over the country got to know Early’s.
More than 85 years later, Early’s has become a staple in the Spring Hill community.
They are still offering the same signature Southern products, like local honey, country-cookin’ mixes, delicious jams and jellies, cheeses and sweet treats.
Owner Curtis Gibbs shares…”Our meats are free of are smoked and cured through a natural process by methods used for hundreds of years. We never cook, clarify or filter any of our honey. We’ve stayed true to our roots, only offering authentic, native products and the best quality food.”
Each Saturday, Early’s offers smoked sausage samples at their retail store in The Commons at Spring Hill. Every third Saturday of each month, they help host “Saturdays at The Commons” on their grounds—a free community gathering where artists, craftsman, farmers and musicians set up.
