Farm Burger opens in Downtown Decatur

Farm Burger recently opened in the former Voila space across from Taqueria del Sol in Downtown Decatur.  

Positioned in an endcap adjacent to Watershed (famous restaurant founded by Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls) Farm Burger is the newest build-your-own gourmet burger concept...with a sustainable twist.  Their burgers are made from 100% grassfed beef that is dry-aged for two weeks and ground daily. Their cows are raised on the sweet grasses of the southeast, and never fed antibiotics, hormones, or grain. Their menu is seasonal and sourced from local farms. Also serving salads, sides, wine, and beer, Farm Burger is striving to create a "marriage of ethical food and farming" while offering America's favorite sandwich.

Farm Burger is located at 410 W. Ponce de Leon Avenue in Downtown Decatur.
