Big Bottles of Fresh Brews!

We've had a few new beers make their debut at The Goat recently, and these newcomers are definitely worth a try! JOLLY PUMPKIN ARTISAN ALES "Calabaza Blanca" White Ale $14 Origin: Dexter, Michigan, USA This is for those of us who want something more substantial than the beer flavored water that's typically peddled with the warmer weather. The barrel aging really shows in this, but you also get the leaner citrus rind and pithy notes on the nose. And, it’s not too bitter.  A... Full Post >

Take a Taste of Fearrington Home

If you have visited any of our shops or stayed in our Inn, you may have noticed a little yellow book propped on the counter for sale or lying on a coffee table next to your room's plush sofa. That familiar yellow book is none other than The Fearrington House Cookbook: A Celebration of Food, Flowers, and Herbs, written by R.B. 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 >

Chocolate Curls

Who knew the amazing new desserts at The Goat would don white and dark chocolate curls? Fearrington's Cake Designer and Chocolatier Emma Isakoff gave us a full tutorial! Start with tempered chocolate at 33 degrees Celsius, known as working temperature in the kitchen, and spread on acetate strips. Why acetate? "Chocolate crystals will mimic whatever surface you place it on," says Emma. "The acetate is shiny which gives the final product a beautiful sheen." Once the chocolate is nice and... Full Post >

A Fresh Look, While you Look!

If you've been in The Goat recently to gander at the beautiful new pastries and gelato, you may have seen the changes that have also been going on with the beer and wine here in The Goat.  The old kraft paper shelf-talkers have been tucked away, and replaced with the snazzy new "chalkboard" style format that is easier to navigate...and read!  In addition to the tasting notes, there are also pairing options for each wine to make it easier to decide if the Viognier that you're considering will...

Gelato Galore!

This Friday, March 20th marks the arrival of a much awaited Spring! While others are preparing for Spring cleaning, The Goat at Fearrington and Executive Chef Colin Bedford have been perfecting gelato -- lots and lots of gelato! Why gelato at The Goat rather than ice cream? "It's a wonderful vehicle for showcasing local fruit and dairy," said Chef Colin Bedford. "The idea started when we were experimenting with our housemade tea blends. The flavors and aroma of hot tea sparked an idea, that... Full Post >

A Little Wine & Wisdom for Valentine’s Day

Nothing says "I love you" like...saying..."I love you," but we all know that your special someone would prefer you speak in gifts instead of English. This is not unfortunate, as wine is a perfect gift that is as rewarding to give as it is for the both of you to enjoy! They say there is a Champagne for every occasion, and for Valentine's it's DUVAL-LEROY Brut Non-Vintage.  Sharing the bounty of chocolate treats that you ordered from The Goat is going to be all the better with a...
