The History of Our Hive

Back when the Model-T was the best-selling car in the world traveling at speeds of 35 miles an hour, US Highway 31 was also known as the Beeline and served as a route of travel from Michigan to the Florida Panhandle for tourists.

Early's Honey Stand Sign

In 1925, a young Tennessee entrepreneur opened a honey stand at the corner of 31 to profit from all of the traffic buzzing by. Right here, on the site of Spring House at Honey Farms, stood sturdy, large production beehives. This honey was harvested, then filled into Mason jars which transported the sweet Tennessee golden honey to kitchens and dining rooms from Birmingham to Saginaw. The last beekeeper to live on the farm was Mr. Glenn Stephans. Until the day he retired, Stephans, sold his delicious honey to Early’s Honey Stand in Spring Hill. Early’s Honey Stand still sells local honey today, keeping the rich history and southern traditions alive.

Spring House at Honey Farms is designed to celebrate our Tennessee heritage, and features a tranquil, country-like setting in close proximity to entertainment, restaurants, and shopping. Residents will appreciate resort-style living in a community that features walking and running trails, a clubhouse, outdoor swimming pool, a basketball court and tennis courts.

Nestled in the lush countryside, Spring House at Honey Farms is just a short drive away from nearby Spring Hill, suburban Franklin, and downtown Nashville. While the buzz of travelers continues over the same old-timey routes, Spring House at Honey Farms maintains its small-town charm and friendly atmosphere celebrated in middle Tennessee.
