From Farmers to Furniture Makers, Family Matters

 

At Farmers Restaurant Group, we are proud of our American heritage and the generations of workers that continue to provide the backbone of our country. From our owners, who are family farmers, to the people who help us create our restaurants, we do our best to honor and support hard-working American families however we can.

At Founding Farmers Tysons, Fishers Farmers Bakers and Farmers & Distillers we partnered with Beachley Furniture in Hagerstown, MD to custom build some of our furniture. Beginning with professional architectural designs, and even working with some sketches on the back of a napkin, their expert craftsmen were able to cultivate our ideas into reality. Each piece combines comfort, style, and durability into unique and unconventional designs.

Beachley has been in the furniture making business since 1887, that is four generations of dedication to their craft. As you will see in the video below, they are adept at working closely with their clients to design and build custom furniture and millwork. We love the work they do and hope to be able to collaborate with them again in the future.

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.

A Delicious Way to Save the Bay

It is no secret that sustainable practices are built into the very fabric of our Founding Farmers mission, which includes our efforts to get to know our suppliers and the sources of our food.
