Prohibition Era Cocktails

In 1920, the Eighteenth Amendment was made to the Constitution, outlawing the production, import, sale and transport of alcoholic beverages. While families could get by with homebrew and hoarded supplies, businesses like saloons and speakeasies were hit hardest by the new law and those enforcing it. However, despite all the confiscation, arrests and occasional skirmishes, society was allowed the...

These styles became popular by kings and queens when sugar was a luxury. Nowadays, sugar is much more accessible to the general populous, but the...

The White Oaks

The White Oak, Quercus alba, is one of the most handsome and majestic trees. Our stand of white oaks, located in front of The Fearrington House Restaurant, is between 100- and 150-years-old.

My love affair with wares from Farmhouse Pottery began when my husband and I were gifted four simple white "Silo" soup mugs a few Christmases ago, and a day does not go by that we are not using these in some capacity. They are the perfect shape, size and depth and work for everything from yogurt and granola to chili, cobbler and pot pies. This Vermont studio pottery was started by a husband and...
