Our coffee and wine shop shop offers an extensive wine by the bottle selection, wines by the glass, artisan lunch options and confectioneries made at The Fearrington House Restaurant, including housemade gelato.
Read below for behind the scene details on the menu, the story of our coffee, and the selection process for our wine!
The Goat is home to Fearrington's beloved coffee roaster, Melina! Melina was built in 1972 in a small village outside of Athens, Greece by Theodore Sakantaris. He named the roaster Melina Mecour in honor of her Greek heritage.
Melina's voyage to America began when a shop owner in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, commissioned Mr. Sakantaris to build a coffee roaster. Sakantaris shipped Melina by boat to Wilmington, N.C., and then on to Winston Salem. Melina was likely the first coffee roaster... Full Post >
The Goat's pastrami sandwich is proving to be one of the most popular dishes on the new menu! What’s the key? Well the housemade bread doesn’t hurt, but the real kicker here is in the meat. We smoke and roast our pastrami in house for 6 hours before slicing it and serving it to guests. The hearty meat, balanced by the sauerkraut and pickles, and all held together by our sourdough bread makes for a filling lunch you’ll be thinking about for days!

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 >
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!

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... Full Post >

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 >

At The Goat, we use solely Maple View Farm cream... Full Post >
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... Full Post >
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 >
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 >
