What To See & Do

Golden Eagle Syrup

Historic Site in Fayette

On October 28, 1928, the first can of Golden Eagle Syrup was produced in Fayette, Alabama by Mr. and Mrs. Victor Patterson, Sr. They had experimented with various mixtures of corn syrup and honey in an effort to find one that not only was delicious, but also mild. Since then, Golden Eagle Syrup has become a favorite of generations of families. That same quality syrup is still produced in Fayette, Alabama today. Though Golden Eagle Syrup is no longer owned by the Patterson family, the Patterson's dream of providing a premium syrup like no other remains the same. Today Golden Eagle Syrup is owned by brothers-in-law Trent Mobley and Vic Herren, and their wives, Teresa Mobley and Jennifer Herren. Golden Eagle remains a family-owned, family-run business; Vic and Teresa's dad, Mr. Jim Herren, is plant manager, and their mother, Mrs. Jeanette Herren, works at the plant. The present owners have a strong commitment to preserving the tradition and quality of Golden Eagle Syrup. Their mission is to continue to produce Golden Eagle Syrup in the manner of the founder's vision: "A Syrup Without an Equal for Any Meal" and, as always, "The Pride of Alabama." Plant tours available, call for appointment.
