Our Historic Sausage Legacy
Since 1945, the Rhoten family has earned an unmatched reputation for quality, handcrafted, all-natural onion sausage, made in small batches. It all began when Willie Rhoten started Rhoten's Thrifty Grocery after his tour of duty in Europe during WWII. Located across the street from the Lexington Mill, Willie and his brother Roy operated their store much as mill community stores all over the south did during that era, supporting the mill employees with store credit until payday.
But the Rhoten brothers added a unique twist to the store by introducing Lexington residents to their mother's family sausage recipe. And the Rhoten's have been serving up hand-made, small batches of the lean flavorfull sausage ever since.
Today the former mill store has transitioned with the times: local crafters display hand-made gifts along side antiques and works by local artists. Even Rhoten's Country Sausage has evolved to offer a wider range of dietary choices that include chicken and turkey sausage, as well as low-sodium styles. It's all made to custom orders.
