Housemade Gelato

The Fearrington House Restaurant’s Chef Colin Bedford is always thinking “what’s next?” Last year he surprised us all with the idea to make homemade gelato. As the weather continues to warm up, we are quite grateful for Chef Bedford’s brainchild and our Italian gelato machine.

With tried and true flavors such as Valrhona Dark Chocolate, Brown Butter Pecan Crunch and Fearrington Coffee, we know we can choose a Fearrington classic, or opt for something different like Key Lime Pie or Coconut & Pineapple. Stop by The Goat for a sweet treat in the afternoon!

Get a sneak peek of Chef Bedford’s newest creations and other behind-the-scenes action by following The Goat on Facebook, or by searching #FearringtonBehindTheScenes!
