To our valued customers and community,


It’s been an interesting year so far, for everyone, and we want to take a moment to give an update on the status of Farmer Boy. First, we hope that you, your family, friends, and neighbors are doing well and staying positive during these trying times. We have been busy with a small staff here, providing meals for military units stationed in the capital region since the second week of the lockdown.


As of today, we still expect to be providing meals for the military members for an indefinite length of time. That catering has become our main focus and will continue to be until their respective missions are completed. If at some point the restrictions being placed on businesses, and people in general are loosened, hopefully not in haste, we expect to reopen shortly after. We want to be sure that reopening is safe and enjoyable for all of our guests and our staff.


When the diner does reopen, we have decided to reduce our hours of operation, in light of this period of adjustments. We are going to focus our efforts and passion into what we feel we can do best. So, at least to start, or should we say, restart, Farmer Boy will be open for breakfast and lunch, and accepting guests from 8 am to 2 pm, when that day comes. We will update our social media pages and our web site as things develop and are nearing a firm reopening date. Until then, we hope you enjoy each and every day, and look forward to seeing you again!
