Farm Burger, the 100 percent grass-fed and locally sourced burger joint, will open in Huntsville’s The Shops at Merchants Walk in mid-February. The restaurant will be located at 930 Bob Wallace Avenue at the northeast corner of Memorial Parkway.
Farm Burger was founded in Decatur, Georgia, in 2010 by organic farmer and rancher Jason Mann and restaurateur George Frangos. Farm Burger’s philosophy is rooted in providing guests with the highest quality produce and pasture-raised meats at accessible prices in a family-friendly environment. Farm Burger achieves this by developing dynamic producer relationships that provide value, respect, and sustainability across the supply chain.
The chef-driven menu features award-winning burgers made from a custom blend of 100 percent grass-fed beef that’s dry-aged, ground fresh, and cooked to order. The menu also includes antibiotic-free chicken, pasture-raised pork, and veggie burgers, seasonal salads, hand-cut fries, and diverse daily specials. The beverage program features milkshakes, floats, and a curated and changing list of local craft beers and small production wines.
"As Farm Burger has grown outside Atlanta, we have focused on expanding to communities and regions with rich food and agriculture traditions, and we believe we have found that in Huntsville,” says cofounder George Frangos. “We’re thrilled to be part of the Huntsville community, to partner with farmers and producers in the area, and to meet new families, neighbors, and friends."
Farm Burger’s design employs green and sustainable practices—relaxed and simple with a modern, rural aesthetic. Farm Burger’s 2300-square-foot space in Huntsville will be open for lunch and dinner daily.
This will mark Farm Burger’s first location in Alabama with a second to follow in Birmingham later in 2016. It will be Farm Burger’s seventh location overall, with current restaurants in Georgia (Decatur, Buckhead, Dunwoody), North Carolina (Asheville), and California (Berkeley and Marin). Farm Burger is also in the process of opening in Nashville, Tennessee, and South Asheville, North Carolina. The restaurants have been featured in Bon Appétit, Southern Living, on CNN, and many more, and Farm Burger was named among Food & Wine’s picks for “Best Burgers in the U.S.”
