About Springer Mountain Farms:
Springer Mountain Farms is a family owned business that has been raising chickens for over 40 years. Years ago in the hills of Northeast Georgia our founders started selling chickens in the back room of their grocery store. They built the company on strong values and kindred relationships within the farming community, and all of the farmers, with up to forty years of experience and third generation families, take great pride in what they do to raise the finest chicken on the market today. Over the years, through studying and learning about the benefits of better animal care, better living conditions, and more stringent biosecurity practices, Springer Mountain Farms became the first poultry producer in the world to gain the endorsement of American Humane Association under their American Humane Certified program. We exercise great care in all that we do, and we know you’ll be able to taste the difference. “Great Care. Great Taste.”
