Show 812 – Foundry Farm

The egg is a symbol for Easter because it represents the miracle of new life. At the Foundry Farm in Cullman, eggs are much more than just a symbol of new life — they’re a big part of a faith-based program that’s helping men turn their lives around after battling drug and alcohol addiction.

For more than a century, everyone from celebrities to local regulars have craved the hot dogs and famous signature sauce served up at Chris’ Hot Dogs.

    I watch Simply Southern every Sunday while I am getting ready for church, i know this is not a religious program, nor are the sponsors necessarily focused on religion; however, my hat is off to you on the segment featuring The Foundry Farm. I appreciated hearing about the farm and the Thrift Store, and I especially appreciated the testimonies of the staff and workers about how the Lord helped them overcome their previous addictions.
    Again, hats off for not editing the testimonies out — they were very inspiring.
