You've heard, "Roll that beautiful bean footage!" And, you've seen Jay and Duke tease about the Secret Family Recipe for Bush's Baked Beans. Now, get to know the Tennessee company a little better.

A.J. Bush founded Bush Brothers & Company in 1908. Starting with canned tomatoes, the food company has grown to produce mouthwatering family favorites.

Three generations later, Bush Brothers & Company is still family-owned and operated, working for the same ideals that were set forth by A.J. Bush more than 90 years ago. When it comes to giving your family the best, you can trust Bush to give its best.

Come see us soon! We're just 40 miles or so from Knoxville, and it's free. Gather your family and come visit ours. We'd love to show you the legacy A.J. and Sally Bush created long ago.

The Visitor Center in Chestnut HIll is housed in the original A.J. Bush & Company building. The Museum and theater let you in on a sneak peek at what goes into making the famous beans, and also entertaining tidbits about Duke. Bush's Family Cafe invites you to sit down and relish a variety of homemade dishes, including their pinto bean pie! Stop by the General Store to pick up Bush's products, souvenirs and goodies. And, don't forget that Bush Brothers Beans are on your grocery store shelves.
