Farmer’s Road: Farm Fresh Fast Food in Chadds Ford

Farmer's Road Chadds Ford

Picture this: You’re taking a drive and hunger hits in in a major way. You realize you haven’t packed your organic snacks (the horror!) and you cannot wait to eat. Although your hunger must be satisfied immediately, you don’t have time for a sit-down meal. Panic sets in when you consider the limited, quick options… a plethora of greasy burgers, fries, MSG-filled fried chicken and soggy sandwiches.

This was my predicament last weekend. Traveling from the Philadelphia Airport to the West Chester suburbs with friends, destiny collided when we stumbled upon Farmer’s Road in Chadds Ford. The rustic sign advertising ‘fresh fast food” beckoned to us and we pulled right in.

Farmer’s Road – Chadds Ford

The concept behind Farmer’s Road is to provide a fresh and healthy alternative to traditional fast food. Executive Chef Ryan is also the chef behind Lotus Farm to Table in Media. Ryan and owner Courtney Rozsas created the inspired, locally sourced Farmer’s Road menu.

Patrons have the option of hitting up the drive thru or eating inside. Our curiosity piqued, so we chose to check out the inside.

Farmer’s Road Restaurant – Menu

The Farmer’s Road menu features grass-fed burgers, salads, tasty snacks like chips, and sweet treats such as vegan rice krispie treats. On the beverage side, selections include fresh and unique shakes like ‘Cake Batter’ and a healthy ‘Root Beer Float’. Need to quench a different thirst? Vegetable juice and a large selection of teas can satisfy anyone’s palate.

We sampled salads, sandwiches, sweet potato chips and juice. Everything tasted flavorful and fresh. The pickle bar was worth venturing inside for, and a huge perk if you’re a fan of salty, fun toppings.

Before we headed back on the road, we inquired with employees about other locations. Chadds Ford is currently the only location, but according to the woman working, they are definitely open to suggestions as Farmer’s road expands.

If drive thru dining was always this lovely, I’d probably take a lot more road trips.

Readers, have you been to the Farmer’s Road? Have you found any other ‘quick’ and healthy choices?
