As excited as we are to see visitors at Fearrington out strolling the gardens, we also truly love to have them enjoy the peaceful beauty of Fearrington by just sitting and relaxing in a garden! With that in mind, we have created several new areas in the Village for our guests to unwind. Nearly everyone is familiar with the iconic white Adirondacks in front of The Fearrington House, but now there are two spots in the nearby shade of the Garden Terrace to discover!

His father is local political fixer while his best friend Antonio, who is more like a brother and favored by his father, is Uttica's Chief of Police. Around this triangle revolve the two books. We first meet Eliot and Antonio as they sit in a... Full Post >
I’m looking so forward to our event on Friday, June 27th at 2pm with Earl Swift and his book Auto Biography: A Classic Car, An Outlaw Motorhead, and 57 Years of the American Dream. Why am I so excited, you may be asking, well, it’s because this is in my opinion this is the perfect storm of good narrative non-fiction. It’s a perfect slice of Americana as seen through the life of one car and its 12 owners, most notably its last, a large, profane, self-educated entrepreneur... Full Post >
