Armed with a dream and an old family sausage recipe, Thomas and Ann Carroll founded Carroll’s Sausage in Ashburn, GA in 1988. Their idea was simple: please customers with the finest, best tasting sausages around. Before long, the business was a hit. Every customer that passed through Thomas and Ann’s doors was impressed by a sausage recipe that had been passed down and refined for generations.
In 2001, Hugh Hardy, Jr. purchased the business (and it’s world-famous sausage recipe) from the Carroll family. A longtime Carroll’s Sausage employee himself, Hugh had a deep passion for the business and a powerful vision to expand it. Over time, Carroll’s Sausage grew to include more meats, hundreds of grocery items, dozens of home grown Southern condiments, and a hot foods counter that serves breakfast and lunch. What began as a small butcher shop became a full-fledged country store.
Now known as Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store, Hugh’s business continues to satisfy thousands of customers every year. The store still makes its home in Ashburn, GA, but with a new location right off I-75. Situated on this busy interstate, Carroll’s is an oasis for weary travelers moving through Georgia and Florida. The business has also settled in Albany, GA, Sylvester, GA and Thomaston, GA.
Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store was founded on the belief that hard work, quality products, and superior service would build success. While the business may have grown, these core values remain the same. Carroll’s still provides the best food and still puts a smile on the face of every customer.
Carroll’s now makes over forty varieties of sausage using the old family recipe. We also make our own snack sticks and beef jerky available in over seven different flavors. We are an old fashioned butcher shop where we custom cut your meat to order. We carry beef and pork as well as specialty meats such as frog legs, quail, and rabbit. We also have chicken available in our Ashburn store. We have a large variety of sauces and seasoning as well as honey, syrup, jams, jellies and preserves, many of which were made right here in Georgia. Some of our Georgia Grown products include Lauri Jo’s famous preserves, honey from Weeks Honey Farm, award winning Wisham’s pepper jellies, and pork skins from Nether’s Skins. We also have a wide variety of frozen vegetables available seasoned with our own bacon ends. Please stop by or give us a call to place an order to be picked up or shipped right to your door. We hope to hear from you soon!
