Farm Boy open for business
The oldest restaurant in Morgantown reopened this morning after being closed down for two weeks. The Farm Boy opened its doors at 5:30 this morning and has had a steady stream of customers ever since. New owner Darrell Deweese has been busy this morning greeting all the customers with a handshake or a pat on the back, running the cash register, and even making a run over to Aberdeen Grocery for more bologna around 7 a.m.
Darrell and wife Amy purchased the Farm Boy in early January from A.C. Phelps and have spent the last two weeks giving the Farm Boy a new look. The restaurant has been scrubbed from top to bottom, the walls have been painted, and there is a new look for the divider. Since the Farm Boy has been a part of Butler County since 1968, the owners felt it would only be fitting to have images from Butler County's past on display in the restaurant. The walls have photos on display show a variety of things including old baseball teams, baptisms in the river, and old buildings located around the county. The photos were given to the Deweeses by Rachel Colter of Smith's Funeral Home.
"We want to invite everyone in the community to stop on by the Farm Boy to see the new look," said Darrell Deweese.
The Farm Boy will be open from 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. "Big Al" said he hopes to see you there!
