Growing Fearrington Vegetables!

The Gardening Team, Chef Colin Bedford, Chef Tom Whitaker and Chef Thomas Card worked hard last fall to clear out the old hoop houses, build raised beds, and prep vegetable seeds to plant.

Anne Stomp from Duckwood Farms in Chatham County, worked with the restaurant team as a consultant to guide in the first growing season. After producing leeks, beets, carrots, kale and radishes for the winter menu, the chefs are already looking ahead to spring!

The chefs have planted cauliflower, romanesco, sugar snap peas, pencil leeks and potatoes for spring. We can’t wait to see how they appear on the upcoming spring menu.

We love how many people have become increasingly fascinated in knowing the origins of their food.

“As a chef, we love the interest because it highlights the work that goes into each individual ingredient and then how much overall work goes into the final product,” said Chef Bedford.

Look for updates on what we are planting, growing and harvesting in our vegetable garden.
