Our black and white belted cows are Belted Galloways, a rare breed of Scottish beef cattle that was introduced to the United States back in the 1950s. In the early 1980s, R.B. Fitch brought a herd of six Belties from Virginia to Fearrington. There are now over thirty Belties grazing our rolling pastures. The Belties’ sole purpose is to greet village guests and coax a smile or two.

While this picture may look like two people relaxing on a bench on our Creekwood Trail, if you could see an enlarged version, you would note that both Mark and I are hold planting trowels in our right hands! We planted 50 spice bushes, a native plant know to attract birds and specifically, the Wood Thrush, along the trail. The Wood Thrush is one of five birds the NC Audubon Society is currently focusing on increasing their population. Once established, the spice bush will have small red... Full Post >

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 >

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 >
Fearrington's longtime farmer and "Beltie-whisperer" Bob Strowd takes Fearrington's Belted Galloway Cows on a trip every year. This yearly adventure takes a select few of Fearrington's Belties away from the serene pastures surrounding the Village Center and into the North Carolina State Fair. Every year the fair grows larger, the crowds increase and the cattle competition intensifies.
We are proud to announce that Fearrington's Belties made a clean sweep of the fair's awards this year --... Full Post >

Tune in tomorrow (Friday, August 29th) at 9:36am EST to see his segment teaser, followed soon after by him whipping up something delicious in the kitchen.

I always love starting the day in our beautiful cutting gardens (thank you Gardener Donna Mears!) and today was even better because I got to share it with an amazing group of women. The charming and talented ladies from Southern Weddings Magazine just happen to be visiting Fearrington for a retreat. We had a casual stroll through the cutting gardens followed by a very informal lesson in bouquet design. It was so interesting to see who picked what – and although they all cut from... Full Post >

Can you believe that one year ago today Fearrington Beltie made his debut off the farm? In just a 365 days he has traveled to Vegas, Brazil, London, New York City and now his friends are filling out their passport too (check them out)!
So, what's Beltie have to say about his adventures? I got the chance to sit down with this traveling oreo bovine and ask him myself.
Q: You’ve traveled a lot of places this year, which destination was your favorite and why?
Beltie: Without a doubt... Full Post >

Peaches are making their debut at The Fearrington Farmer's market tomorrow! The season becomes even more "peachy" when the peaches arrive from Kalawi Farm. They bring delicious peaches, and delightful, homemade peach ice cream in small, individual-sized containers.
The Fearrington Farmer's Market has a few tips on selecting peaches:
Look for peaches with a creamy to gold under color that best indicates ripeness. The amount of red blush on fruit depends on the variety and is not always a... Full Post >

While most have seen our lively Beltie Crew in the front pastures as they enter the Village Center, only some know where to find their friends made of stone that also "live and graze" in Fearrington. When the temperatures started to drop in the Fall some of our residents took it upon themselves to keep our concrete sheep nice and warm throughout the winter with scarves and little leg warmers! To visit with these friendly animals we challenge you to come find them and their handmade... Full Post >
