Let Your Sweet Tooth Support American Family Farmers

Tuesday afternoon, our sibling restaurant, Founding Farmers & Distillers, welcomed our brand-new 18-wheeler to town, chock-full of ingredients – including the sugar we use in all of our desserts and Beyla Honey – from North Dakota family farms.

This recent addition to the Farmers Restaurant Group family is another step in our efforts to support family farming in the U.S., while giving our guests high-quality ingredients that make a real difference in our recipes.

Many may not know that family farmers actually make 14.8 cents to every dollar spent on retail food in the U.S. This “farmer’s share” is currently at an all-time low, with farm families facing the sharpest declines in their income since the Great Depression.

As a farmer-owned company, we are doing everything we can to bring more money into the hands of the family farmers who grow and produce our food. This starts with how we get our ingredients.

From now on, most of the sugar we use in our desserts, both granulated and brown, will come directly from North Dakota on our own truck.  Our honey comes from bee farmers, Nick and Tawnie Jensen, of Beyla Honey in North Dakota. We also use our farmer-owned 18-wheelers to ship our famous applewood bacon, grits, flour, oats directly from American family farmers.  Keany Produce & Gourmet will continue to help us distribute our North Dakota products, as well as other family-farmed ingredients we use in our recipes, to all of our restaurants across the DC area and to our Founding Farmers in King of Prussia, PA.

Not only is this good for family farmers across the U.S., but it’s good for our guests. All of our desserts taste better with high-quality sugar shipped directly from America’s farmland.

So, the next time you join us for our Carrot Cake, Apple Pie, or some warm cookies, you can feel good knowing you are supporting the heart of this great country, family farmers in the Midwest.

If desserts aren’t your thing, you can support our farmers with one of our craft cocktails. Other ingredients that will also be catching a ride on our truck include the wheat we use in our award-winning craft vodka from our in-house distillery, Founding Spirits.
