It's no secret that as gardeners at Fearrington we take great pride in keeping our numerous and beautiful gardens immaculate and always photo-ready. Yet even we have areas at the edges of our cultivated grounds where weeds and woods make a valiant effort to encroach on our space. In the past, as many do, we have fought back with machinery, chemicals (where appropriate) and hours of labor.
This summer we decided to try something greener, gentler, and much more picturesque! Blessed with a... Full Post >

After passing by old hoop houses that were covered in vines and weeds, I had an idea to continue Fearrington’s farm to fork mission – a vegetable garden.
Our gardening team helped to clear out the hoop houses and then myself and my Executive Sous Chef Tom Whitaker and Sous Chef Thomas Card built the raised beds.
More and more people are interested in where their food comes from, how it’s grown and how it gets from the ground to their plate. As a chef, we love the interest because it... Full Post >
With the worst of summer heat behind us and lovely fall planting weather ahead, now is the perfect time to consider planting native trees and shrubs for birds and other wildlife to enjoy!
As we've been finding here in the gardens at Fearrington, so many of our favorite natives offer not only sustenance for wildlife, but also add dazzling fall color and bright winter berries to the landscape. There are plants for every garden need available from local growers and nurseries too - ranging... Full Post >

We've had bridal couples consider it before, and I remember thinking it was a cute idea, but now I am a believer! I’m talking about Burying the Bourbon -- really.
In our planning meeting, I realized that Libby was serious about burying a bottle of Bourbon at her wedding site 30 days before her and Will's big day. So, our gardener Donna cheerfully obliged.
A month later, Will did the honors of digging up the buried treasure just before the ceremony, in the midst of a heatwave with... Full Post >
Have I mentioned that I love my job? I do. I really do!
My day consist of meeting people who are in love, helping them plan a beautiful day and playing with flowers. I do all this in the most beautiful environment -- surrounded by gardens and talented coworkers. As always, thank you to the Fitch family for creating such a dream place.
And the icing on the cake...Star, our fabulous shop kitty. We all love her so! She can usually be found lounging under her zinnias in our cutting garden.... Full Post >

Summer is almost here in the South, and there is no better place to spend it than with us at The Fearrington House Inn. There are numerous gardens, flower beds, and fresh botanicals pleasing to the eye and soul scattered around the Inn. If you look through the arbors of Jenny’s Garden next to the Sun Room Patio (exclusive to Inn guests!), you can see crabapple trees lining an intimate wedding venue. Just behind that, you can spot a fenced-in herb garden, officially used by the chefs of The... Full Post >

Flowers and Mother's Day are almost a foregone conclusion, but keeping the tradition alive doesn't have to mean supermarket roses or dyed carnations. Local Farmer's Markets are exploding with floral beauty at this time of year, and putting together something as special as Mom is can be as simple as purchasing a few spectacular blooms, augmenting with fresh greenery from your own garden, and wrapping the stems with a bit of fabric ribbon to make the perfect tussie-mussie!

Fitch's late wife Jenny Fitch and illustrated by Dovecote's merchandising manager Daneen Eaton.
Arranged by season and celebration, this all-inclusive book offers... Full Post >

It's early on a weekend morning in April and the sun has already warmed the spot on the terrace at The Fearrington House Restaurant, where you've chosen to enjoy the day's first cup of coffee.

As vibrant and beautiful as the gardens at Fearrington are throughout the... Full Post >
