The Goat

Our newly renovated deli and coffee shop includes an expanded wine selection, extended evening hours, light dinner fare and live music. Still making delicious salads, sandwiches and selling confectioneries made at The Fearrington House Restaurant.

All in the Bread

The new menu at The Goat focuses on artisanal sandwiches, soups and salads. When Chef Colin Bedford was testing out the new recipes, he knew to make the sandwiches exceptional, they needed to be made-well from the bottom up. What better place to start than with the bread? All of our bread is made in-house each morning by Pastry Sous Chef Paola de Maayer and her team. Whether you love the tomato bread, sourdough bread or ciabatta, they are all made by hand in our kitchen using natural... Full Post >

Good Mornings Start with Pastries

Did you know all of our pastries are made fresh in The Fearrington House kitchen every morning? Led by Pastry Sous Chef Paola de Maayer, our team crafts croissants, bakes scones and mixes muffins. All of our pastries are made by hand, never pre-packaged, and always delicious. A few of our favorites are the croissants and the coffee cake! Nothing goes better with your morning coffee than freshly made pastries. Stop by The Goat to pick up a favorite or something new! Get a sneak peek of... Full Post >

Fearrington Fullsteam Summer ITA is Here

As the temperature starts to reach into the 90s and the humidity feels like a blanket of invisible water we find ourselves looking for the perfect way to cool down. Nothing in my opinion is better than the India Tea Ale produced in collaboration between Fullsteam Brewery and Fearrington Village. This is our second summer with this beer, and this year it is better than ever. Since we are in the South, and the historical summer beverage of choice is iced tea, we thought it would be a great...

Fearrington Coffee

Did you know over 100lbs of coffee beans are roasted at Fearrington every week? Those beans make the coffee at The Goat for frappes and gelato, morning coffee at breakfast at The Fearrington House, and after dinner at The Granary. Fearrington coffee just doesn't compare to big name coffee blends, says Fearrington's coffee roaster, Patrick. "We use only premium Arabica beans and carefully roast our coffee to the best of its potential," he said. "We ensure freshness by bagging our coffee the... Full Post >

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... Full Post >

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...

Fearrington Coffee Roasted On-Site

Did you know we roast our signature Fearrington blend coffee on site at The Goat? We actually roast over 150 pounds of coffee weekly for the Village Center. Our coffee blend is made of several beans and roasted by our coffee aficionado Patrick Soucey. From regular blend, to decaf, to espresso, each is distinct in aroma and flavor. All are blended in our own coffee roaster, Melina. All coffee beans are roasted in Melina's open-flame, rotating drum, which causes changes in their flavor... Full Post >

Roasting Coffee

At Fearrington we roast our signature blend coffees on-site. In fact, we roast around 150 pounds of coffee each week! So what does “roasting coffee” actually mean? We asked our coffee roaster Patrick that very question. “Roasting coffee is the process of transforming green coffee beans, physically and chemically, using heat,” says Patrick. “We use a very unique opened flame rotating drum roaster, our beloved Melina. Once the beans are poured inside the drum it will go through a... Full Post >

This Saturday’s Wine Tasting!

It's spring time and with that the weather is (hopefully!) warming up. For me, nothing shouts spring more than Riesling. I love a nice, crisp white with a touch of sweetness to sip on the porch. It's the iced tea of wine for me! However, Riesling gets a bad wrap due to that reputation of being cloyingly sweet. Thankfully, it is a versatile wine that can run the gamut of sweetness, from dry and austere all the way to honeyed-sweet, and everywhere in between. To celebrate this wide range, we... Full Post >

Syrah This Saturday

This weeks theme for the wine tasting is Syrah, one of my personal favorite red grape varieties. With the weather warming up and the sun starting to show a bit more, the grill that's been laying dormant in everyone's storage should be making more of an appearance! With that in mind, we have three Syrah selections that would be perfect for any afternoon spent by the grill! To celebrate this wide range, we have three beautiful Syrahs for you to taste this Saturday! We hope you can join us... Full Post >
