Springer Mountain Farms Returns as WFC’s Official Chicken Sponsor

The pride themselves on producing the most delicious, purest, and most nutritious chicken possible. In November, competitors will use the 100% natural poultry product to create a mouth-watering chicken parmesan dish in their structure build round.
