At Biscuitville Fresh Southern, local means serving all-natural chicken from Springer Mountain Farms, which is made up of more than 300 local family farms located throughout Northeast Georgia and South Carolina. All chickens from Springer Mountain Farms are naturally hatched and raised with absolutely no antibiotics, steroids or hormones and on a 100 percent vegetarian diet.
Springer Mountain Farms chicken is available at all Biscuitville locations in North Carolina and Virginia and is offered in a variety of scratch-made breakfast and lunch sandwiches, including Biscuitville’s popular Spicy Chicken and Honey Biscuit and the classic Fried Chicken Biscuit. Springer Mountain Farms chicken also is available grilled as part of Biscuitville’s high-protein English Muffin sandwiches or as a true fried tender on the Fresh Southern lunch menu.

Chicken from Springer Mountain Farms is simply delicious, and Biscuitville looks forward to a long partnership with the local family farms that work together as Springer Mountain Farms.”
“We partner with local and regional companies like Springer Mountain Farms to supply fresh, quality food sources whenever we can,” Jennings adds. “Biscuitville supports local family businesses because we’re one, too.”
