Farm Burger is about more than just a great burger. It is a labor of love that satisfies its founders’ personal commitment to animal welfare, ecological agriculture and sustainability practices. In an era where the concept of “Farm to Table” has become little more than a commodity, Farm Burger has created its own self-contained agricultural and economic ecosystem which keeps dollars in the local economy while restoring the productivity of its pastures. While championing all things local, their grass feed beef is raised right here in Georgia. With their communal tables and lack of pre-designed burgers, Farm Burger encourages participation from its customers. There are wide assortments of toppings starting with the basics that come free with your burger to the more extravagant for a dollar or two more. If you prefer something unusual but you want to be sure it will be good, try one of their Blackboard Burgers or the Daily Burger which varies by location. All Farm Burger burgers are grass-fed, antibiotic and hormone-free, locally raised, ground fresh, made in-house and griddled to perfection!
