Dining out with friends can foster healthy relationships that might otherwise be limited to impersonal group texts or overly personal bath-time visits. Get a bite in person with a person with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of barbecue, burgers, and more at Farmer Johnson’s Country Kitchen in Mechanicsville.
Farmer Johnson’s Country Kitchen owners Brady and Tara Johnson draw on their rural roots to whip up a menu of locally sourced, organic burgers, salads, and slow-cooked barbeque pork, which earned them a feature in Hanover Lifestyle magazine. Forks can play hooky from etiquette lessons in the raked heap of local field greens in a Farmer’s salad, ornamented with seasonal tidbits of fruit, edamame, and pecans ($7.99). Juicy, slow-cooked pulled pork ($7.99) descends to the table steaming beside hearty sides such as hand-cut fries or savory baked beans. Chefs show their commitment to sustainability and hatred of unkempt lawns by procuring grass-fed beef from local farms for specialty burgers such as the build-your-own Farmer’s burger ($8.99) or the barbecue-slathered Southern-style burger ($8.99). Farmer Johnson's also features a variety of daily specials, which have included lettuce wraps with peach vinaigrette and meatloaf with mashed potatoes.
Worn picture frames, mason jars, and antique teapots cultivate a rustic atmosphere within Farmer Johnson’s mint-hued walls. Patrons seeking liquid company can sample local beers such as Starr Hill and Legend Brown Ale (not included with this Groupon). They may also opt to scrawl brightly colored greetings on the wall-mounted blackboard alongside the signatures of other patrons and the hoof prints of visiting cow heads of state.
