FARM is an amazing premise: Come and eat lunch, pay what you can, pay more to help others, and have an imaginative meal. And if a person is unable to pay, they can eat and then volunteer an hour. The food is natural, healthy, local and very good. The day we ate was all vegetarian, so my chicken tender loving daughter wasn't thrilled, but a good sport. Different menu everyday. We will go back the next time we're in the area.

This place is a wonderful concept that has been covered by other posters. We ate here for the first time & enjoyed both the quality of the food & the fact that a lot of it is locally grown. It's a wonderful idea.

The food is always superb and wonderfully creative. I have eaten here dozens of times and have always been impressed with how flavorful and healthy the meals are. When you consider that the chef must come up with a different menu each day, depending on what is provided by local gardens, you appreciate all the more how talented she is. The restaurant pulses with the concept of community, and dining there fosters a sense of our shared humanity and good will. The pay-what-you-can concept is on the cutting edge of social change, and it is a unique experience to dine here and be a part of it!

If you visit Boone, you should visit Farm Cafe. The food it all local and exceptional. Don't let the cause fool you, this place it excellent and the food is always great. The cause is, if some people cannot afford to pay, they can volunteer and still get a great meal. AWESOME!!
