At Farmers Restaurant Group, every day we are working to build and run green, sustainable restaurants.
As a farmer-owned company, we care about the future of the planet, and we recognize the importance of preserving the land for future generations. This work has always been a priority in all of our restaurants, Founding Farmers, Farmers Fishers Bakers, and our latest Farmers & Distillers, as well as our distillery, Founding Spirits. We know living sustainably is also a priority for many of our guests.
For us, whether it is our filtered drinking water, our composting programs, our LEED certifications, or paying close attention to the source of our food, we are always working to do more good and less harm. And still serve our delicious scratch-made food and drink.
As Co-Owner Dan Simons says in the accompanying video, “everything matters.”
Feeding Our Neighbors with Breadcoins
Founding Farmers & Distillers partners with a growing nonprofit in the District working to feed our neighbors. Breadcoin helps distribute food tokens, or “Breadcoins,” to people who are hungry or food-insecure that can be used like cash at local restaurants, bakeries, markets, food trucks, and more.
Straws Made By Life
We have a new sustainability partner across our restaurants. After a lot of trial and error trying to find the best alternative for plastic straws, we came across Restore Regenerative Foodware.
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.
