Permalink North Dakota Farmers Union Opens Sixth Restaurant

North Dakota Farmers Union (NDFU), in partnership with Agraria LLC members and the Farmers Restaurant Group, has opened a sixth restaurant. This one is the first outside the Washington Beltway, and is located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. NDFU President Mark Watne said the concept of a farmer-owned restaurant started at NDFU with the idea that farmers could secure a greater share of the U.S. food dollar by taking advantage of opportunities at the top of the production food chain rather than the bottom. "The thought was to get closer to the consumer and then own the whole food chain system," he said. "Not only are we putting more money into the hands of family farmers and ranchers, we're strengthening people's understanding of why family farm agriculture is so important to our country." The group plans to open a seventh restaurant early next year in Virginia.
