We are F.A.R.M. Cafe
F.A.R.M. Cafe was inspired in 2009 by a community kitchen operating successfully in Salt Lake City, Utah, called One World Cafe. A group of citizens from the High Country United Church of Christ were convinced that a similar restaurant could serve our area's unmet hunger needs while strengthening our High Country community.
After receiving untold support from our local community and pioneers in the pay-what-you-can cafe movement like Libby and Brad Birky and Denise Cerreta, F.A.R.M. Cafe was able to lease space in Boone Drug Downtown, a 100-year-old building on Boone's historic King Street in January 2012. For decades, Boone Drug's soda fountain served the community as a social gathering place, and F.A.R.M. Cafe continues that tradition through its mission
...to build a healthy and inclusive community by providing high quality & delicious meals produced from local sources, served in a restaurant where everybody eats, regardless of means.
Our continued success is impossible without the tremendous support and financial contributions of the High Country community—both large and small. Thank you!
