Supporting Local Farms

As a small, family-owned business, Fearrington truly appreciates the support we get form the local community. In return, we do our best to support the local farms in the area producing great products. From organizing the Fearrington Farmer’s Market 25 years ago, to establishing relationships with farmers to create delicious farm-to-fork meals at The Fearrington House Restaurant, it is our priority to work with local food and local farmers.

At The Goat, we use solely Maple View Farm cream and milk for all of our coffee drinks and gelato. We also use Duckwood Farms microgreens in many of our lunch dishes. Thank you to our patrons, and a huge thanks to local farms that feed our community!

Follow Executive Chef Colin Bedford and The Goat on Facebook to see new creations and how we use local ingredients. Tag your pictures with #FearringtonNC to share your experiences!

One of my best friends used to babysit for his nieces and nephews here in Charlotte and she finally gave my number to him. Sears hadn't lived in Charlotte all that long and Anna had... Full Post >

Benefits of Prenatal Massage

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. Pregnancy massage is beneficial throughout the entire nine months of the pregnancy.

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...
