Farm 255 is part of a collective of like-minded businesses linked by their aligned outlook, objectives, and owners.
Farm Burger is a 100% grassfed, locally-sourced burger joint in Decatur and Atlanta, Georgia. With a more casual feel and setting, it captures everything familiar, comforting and delicious about the burger, while introducing metro Atlanta to an ethical and economical version of America’s favorite sandwich. Sourced from southeastern partner ranchers and growers via our cooperative of pasture-based producers Moonshine Meats, our beef is from cows that are never fed hormones, antibiotics, or grain. It is dry-aged and ground fresh. To compliment traditional burger and fry offerings, Farm Burger serves a large selection of house-made accompaniments including pickles, preserves, local farmstead cheeses, and house-cured bacon and charcuterie from our own pigs. Farm Burger and Farm 255 source much of their vegetables from our very own Full Moon Farms. Full Moon is a collective of small farms in Winterville, Georgia. In addition to supporting our restaurants, Full Moon operates a CSA providing vegetables for families in the Athens area for the last ten years.
1000 Faces Coffee is another next-of-kin also located in Athens. The company emerged out of a belief that respect for geographic origin, direct relationships, and ecological awareness is the basis for creating a more sustainable and responsible coffee culture. 1000 Faces forges direct relationships with sustainable coffee farmers in various countries around the world, imports green beans to its über-hip industrial roasting facility, works its alchemist magic, and turns out a silky product that is both ethical and ethereal. Beyond fair trade, direct trade sourcing shrinks the distance between grower and consumer that re-writes them both as “co-producers” (to borrow a phrase from Slow Food’s founder Carlo Petrini). Don’t forget, drinking good coffee can be an act of civil disobedience.
