Open Monday-Friday 11-2pm!

Today we welcome Health Life Coaching and Amy as they Buy Boone Lunch in Memory of her Father Dwight Davis Thompson Jr. As he loved Hot Dogs, we will be serving up Ramblin Poppy all beef brisket Hot Dogs with all the fixings, Three Bean Salad, Sweet Potato Fries, and more. He loved the mountains and always kept a rock in his pocket to keep him close to nature and God. So stop in today for a loaded Dog and grab a rock to keep in your pocket in Mr. Thompson's memory. Because of Healthy Life Coaching's generous donation covers the basic costs of the meal and operations, all donations today help provide meals for those who are unable to pay.

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 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!

Get Involved

F.A.R.M. Cafe and its programs rely primarily on volunteers to serve our community: Monday through Friday contribute to restaurant operations or Saturday prepare ready-to-eat meals with our Full Circle food recovery program.
