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 >

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... Full Post >
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 >

When the temperature drops there are a few things that become necessities: scarves, hats, mittens, wool socks and my morning cup of coffee. The way a warm cup of coffee warms me up and awakens my senses prepares me for the activities of the day. Throughout the year, Fearrington Village is enveloped in that same aroma of freshly roasted coffee. In the winter the aroma is more powerful and even more welcoming. When I sense that smell I know our coffee roaster Julian Vargas is busy at work at... Full Post >
