WASHINGTON — Just a few blocks from the White House, Founding Farmers brings customers fresh food and a farm experience.

“We sort of try to make all what we call touch points, to remind the guests that we’re owned by farmers, and that we represent the American family farmer, even in a big restaurant in the in the city,” said Dawn Vileno, Managing Partner.

The North Dakota Farmers Union owns seven restaurants, including Founding Farmers. The business aims to bridge the gap between urban and rural America with ingredients sourced directly from their farmers.
