At Springer Mountain Farms, we know family and we know great tasting chicken. As a family owned business located in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia, our goal is to provide you and your family with the healthiest, best tasting chicken on the market today. We are proud of the fact that we do not buy our eggs or chickens from other countries, but raise them right here where we know what our chickens are fed and how they are raised. Families with up to three generations of experience raise our chickens in these pristine mountains. Cool summers and mild winters provide ideal conditions for Springer Mountain Farms chickens. While Mother Nature provides fresh mountain water and wholesome feed ingredients, our farmers provide the necessary care to produce the finest chicken possible.
Our chickens are fed a pesticide free, vegetarian diet of corn and soybean without the use of antibiotics, growth stimulants or hormones, or animal by-products. 100% of the corn and soybean that we use is grown right here in the United States. We do not import from other countries. The corn and soybean meal is extensively tested on-site in our USDA Certified laboratory not only for nutrient value, energy, protein, minerals, and amino acids, but also for numerous quality standards such as molds, moisture, grade of product, and pesticide contamination. We are one of the few poultry producers who can and do test ingredients this extensively. We staff dedicated quality assurance specialists that inspect each incoming load of corn and soybean meal and each load of finished feed as it goes out to the farms as well. Our feed mill was the first feed mill in the world to earn the Safe Feed Safe Food certification from the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA). Because of these numerous quality checks, we exceed the standards for organic feeds.
After diet, the next most important aspect to a healthy, better tasting chicken is high quality living conditions. We recognized that in order for chickens to remain healthy, they have to be treated far better than those under conventional practices. Therefore, we invited the American Humane Association to perform independent third-party inspections of our farms and facilities to be sure we were giving our chickens the best care possible. In June 2001, we became the first poultry company in the world to be certified by the American Humane Association, and still hold that certification today.
