History

Established in 2009

The idea for F.A.R.M. Cafe began in 2009 when a group of citizens who were concerned about the area's food insecure.
They discussed a community kitchen concept that was operating successfully in Salt Lake City, Utah.
It was called One World Everybody Eats Café.
They befriended One World Everybody Eats Café's founder Denise Cerreta, who visited Boone and offered valuable insight and advice for operating a successful community kitchen.

In January 2012, F.A.R.M. Cafe began leasing the soda foundation space in Boone Drug Downtown, a 100-year-old building on Boone's historic King Street. For decades, Boone Drug's soda fountain served the community as a social gathering place, F.A.R.M Cafe will continue in that tradition, providing a place for all.

The opening of F.A.R.M. Cafe in May 2012 would've been impossible without the tremendous support of the High Country community and their generous contributions. Thank you!
