Thurston County’s Farmboy Restaurant Serves Up A Heaping Helping of Resistance

A growing number of small business owners in the Pacific Northwest have had enough of our governors destroying people’s livelihoods, economic security, and mental and emotional well-being with their unconstitutional lockdowns and isolation orders.

Those business owners, whether they be a food-and-drink establishment, an entertainment enterprise, or a mom-and-pop grocery store, are doing more than defying edicts for mere money.

These brave entrepreneurs are fighting to keep their businesses alive so they can continue to pay their employees the wages needed to stay current on bills and put food on the table. These open businesses provide a familiar atmosphere with friendly faces as an escape from the stress and anxiety of isolation in perpetual lockdown.

That’s why your Freedom Foundation is proud to stand with many of them, including Brian Robbins, owner of the popular Farmboy Restaurant south of Olympia, Wash. Farmboy is a staple in the community and is scheduled to plead its case to remain open penalty-free on Tuesday, Dec. 22, at 1:30 p.m. PT.

(UPDATE 12/22/2020, 2:00 pm) Thurston County Superior Court Judge, Chris Lanese, granted Farmboy Restaurant a continuance to Jan 5th, 2021.  However, Judge Lanese made it clear he expected the court’s temporary restraining order (TRO) to be obeyed.   If Farmboy continues to operate while under the TRO, they could face contempt of court, more fines, and possible jail.

Farmboy Restaurant is serving more than just food, and it needs our help. They’ve racked up $9,600 in fines each day they’re open, but they’re not backing down.

Please watch and share this video to help support Farmboy. If you’re in the area of Thurston County, Wash., please consider stopping by and purchasing a meal or a cup of coffee.

If you’d like to stand with Farmboy and can’t make it to the restaurant, please consider donating to its cause through your Freedom Foundation. Donations made to Freedom Foundation in Farmboy’s name will go to fight for local businesses to remain open for the good of their employees, customers, and community.
