Farm 255 is a restaurant that seeks to reconnect food to its roots & people to their food.
Local, Seasonal & Sustainable
We serve local, seasonal, & sustainable food for supper nightly. In addition to the Farm we manage Full Moon Farms, an organic/biodynamic animal and vegetable production farm in Athens. Unlike the owners of any other restaurant we know of, we are the folks sowing turnip seeds in the morning and cooking turnip greens in the evening.
We supplement our harvests with those of other local family farmers and ranchers that avoid harmful chemicals and practice sustainable agriculture. Our menu, based on seasonal shifts in the field, changes as often as the weather.
Featuring Food From Pasture-Raised Animals
Our meat comes from pasture-raised animals & is hormone & antibiotic free. We raise most of our own livestock, and utilize whole animals & all the various cuts of meat throughout our menu. We are as committed to good community as we are to our cuisine.
Until a century ago, almost everything that everyone ate everywhere on earth was organic, free-range, artisanal, and locally-grown or locally-produced. It wasn't special or high-end, it was just food. We hope for our restaurant to help achieve that norm again, and make everyday food genuinely “good food”: locally sourced, seasonal, steeped in tradition and narrative, connecting people to each other, to their community, and to their right to eat and live well.
