Founding Farmers Tysons pays homage to rustic life on a Virginia farm while offering guests all the modern amenities, engaging and whimsical spatial design, and delicious, fresh-from-the-farm food they’ve grown to love from the Founding Farmers franchise.

According to the conceptual team and managing partners behind the Founding Farmers brand, all of the restaurants are a labor of love, but with this latest installment they’ve grown as a team. They have striven to push the innovation and ingenuity envelope in order to inspire and amaze guests … from the in-house butcher’s studio and juice cleanse program/cold pressed juice bar to churning butter in-house to the ‘micro-climate’ areas created to transport guests to individual spaces found in a traditional Virginia farmhouse.

Perhaps the most endearing elements of the restaurant are the cute critters and whimsical designs that “live” within the space. These specially created, adorable design elements, such as a baby black bear, a 5’ fuchsia duck, and glowing gold in-laid eggs, have become part of the Founding Farmers Tysons family.

Working closely with the amazingly talented design and artistry team at SIGN IT Signs & Design, they were able to bring the concepts to life. Inspired by the baby black bears found in remote areas along the commonwealth of Virginia, the FFT baby black bear sits up on his hind legs, with his nose in the air so he’s able to take in all the delicious aromas of the restaurant.

As guests dine within the Founding Farmers Tysons restaurant space, they not only love the food, the design, and the atmosphere we’ve worked so hard to bring to fruition … but they are as charmed by our family of critters as we are!
