BISMARCK, N.D. — A sixth farmers’ restaurant with ties to the North Dakota Farmers Union has opened in Pennsylvania.

Farmers Union President Mark Watne says the new restaurant is located in King of Prussia. It’s called Founding Farmers King of Prussia.

The group came up with the concept and opened the first farmer-owned restaurant in 2006, in Washington, D.C. Other farmer-owned restaurants are located in Maryland and Virginia.

They feature beef, vegetables, and other crops sent directly from North Dakota and family farms across the country.

A seventh restaurant is scheduled to open next year in Reston, Virginia.
