Located at Reston Station right on the Metro’s Silver Line, Founding Farmers Reston Station is a full-service restaurant and bar open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and our Farmers Market Buffet Brunch on weekends. As a farmer-owned restaurant, almost all of their delicious food and drink – from their freshly baked bread and house-churned butter to their craft cocktails with award-winning proprietary spirits – is made from scratch, using high-quality ingredients from American family farms.

Their name “Founding Farmers” is a nod to our Founding Fathers, many of whom were devoted farmers long before they became trailblazers for our country. While those leaders built and contributed to the American agricultural tradition, Founding Farmers recognizes that our mission is also about growing a new venture with farmers at the root: one that strengthens their livelihood, gives back to the community, and makes quality food accessible to all.

Designed by Gensler, the Reston location embraces the overall mission of Founding Farmers, incorporating cozy and natural decor, quotes from the Founding Fathers and reSAWN’s WEATHERWORN reclaimed barn siding. WEATHERWORN was used as an accent wall behind booth seating and as the perimeter of the ceiling feature.

WEATHERWORN is ANTIQUE RECLAIMED BARN SIDING in the raw  – for interior wall cladding. The boards go through the typical reclamation process of power washing and denailing with the original patina of the board face left untouched. No finish is required as the boards have been naturally oxidized over the years to produce a tough, weather resistant “skin”. Typical character marks include mineral staining, color changes, weathering, checking, nail holes, knots, and heavy patina. Due to the nature of this material, thicknesses tend to vary slightly.  WEATHERWORN is available in a variety of species and colors. This material is provided as a mix of light/dark grey and light/dark brown tones.

reSAWN offers antique reclaimed woods in solid & engineered construction for flooring, interior wall cladding, and millwork/stair applications.  The unique beauty of antique wood is preserved & celebrated in this collection.  Expect a warm palette of colors, with dense & varying grain patterns.  Typical character marks include mineral staining, color changes, weathering, checking, nail holes, and knots.
