Chef Leo is the founder of Good Bird, a popular sandwich restaurant in New Orleans. He wanted everything at Good Bird to revolve around sourcing the best possible ingredients. So he found an ideal chicken supplier in Springer Mountain Farms in Georgia, where their free-range birds are raised hormone- and antibiotic-free.
