The Stevens Sausage tradition is as rich and historic as the land the family originally farmed. Since 1742, the family has lived and worked in central and eastern Johnston County, N.C. It was from this farm that Needham S. Stevens first perfected his seasoning formula that has made Stevens Sausage one of the best around. Although technology allows us to make sausage year-round, the same care and quality that Needham started more than 50 years ago is still visible. Stevens produces thousands of pounds of pork sausage, souse, chitterlings, smoked sausage, hot dogs, hot-dog chili, and their famous country hams each week.
