Farm Burger, the 100 percent grass-fed and locally sourced burger joint, will open its second Asheville, North Carolina, location at 1831 Hendersonville Road Monday, May 9. Three years ago, Farm Burger opened their first Asheville location, downtown at 10 Patton Avenue, and each year since opening, Farm Burger has been named the city’s best burger in Mountain Xpress. 

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.    

“Asheville has been and continues to be one of our favorite cities, with a community that shares our passion for good, local food,” says Farm Burger cofounder George Frangos. “We’re looking forward to supplementing our Asheville presence with a second location, and to connecting with new neighbors and friends in south Asheville.” 

Farm Burger’s design employs green and sustainable practices—relaxed and simple with a modern, rural aesthetic. Farm Burger’s 2700-square-foot restaurant in south Asheville will include an outdoor patio and will be open for lunch and dinner daily, 11:30 a.m–10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 11:30 a.m.–11 p.m. Friday to Saturday.         

This will be Farm Burger’s eighth location nationwide, with other restaurants in Georgia (Decatur, Buckhead, Dunwoody), California (Berkeley and Marin), and Alabama (Huntsville). Farm Burger is also in the process of opening in Nashville, Tennessee, and Birmingham, Alabama. The restaurants have been featured in Bon Appetit, Southern Living, on CNN, and many more. Farm Burger was also named among Food & Wine’s picks for “Best Burgers in the U.S.”
