Sunflowers are Back

It is a great season to visit Founding Farmers Tysons. Our sunflowers are back and in-house through September.  We love welcoming guests to our Tysons restaurant with our bounty of sunflowers. Each year, we harvest these beauties with our friends and sustainable partners at Sweet Virginia, a non-profit working to educate children about the wonder of honey bees and their importance in pollinating and maintaining food diversity for every living creature on the planet.
