Fans can come early to the Ryman’s newly opened Nashville eatery and bar, Café Lula which always features Springer Mountain Farms® signature chicken as well as other tasty entrées and sandwiches. Diners can also enjoy house made chips, local beverages, and desserts baked fresh daily.

We have been incredibly fortunate to partner with Springer Mountain Farms® on Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman for the last ten years. Their support has allowed us to put on one of the preeminent bluegrass series in the country. Last year we expanded our relationship to Cafe Lula, where we now serve Springer Mountain Farms chicken and we couldn’t be prouder -, Sally Williams, Ryman Auditorium General Manager.

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, the company became the first poultry producer in the world to gain the endorsement of American Humane Association under their American Humane Certified program.
