PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. – Culver's has put antibiotic-free chicken on the menus at all of its locations. The company said these natural-cut chicken breasts will be featured on its Grilled and Crispy Chicken Sandwiches, Chicken Tenders and Buffalo Chicken Tenders as well as in its kids meals.
Culver’s chickens are raised on a 100-percent vegetarian diet by Springer Mountain Farms in Ga., a subsidiary brand of Fieldale Farms. Certified by the American Humane Association, Springer Mountain chickens are raised not fed animal by-products; have access to clean water; and live under conditions that limit stress.
"The partnership with Fieldale Farms is a natural fit," said David Stidham, Culver’s vice president of marketing. "They run their business much like ours, with a focus on quality and an end product that their consumers love. Their naturally-raised chicken means a better taste experience for our guests."
