Our Story

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, we are closing Fearrington Village businesses starting at 5pm today. We are working out the details now to make sure that we are able to support our staff during this difficult time. The shops, the spa, the Fearrington House inn and restaurant, and the real estate office will stay closed for at least the next two weeks. We are constantly monitoring the situation and will post updates to social media and our website when we have them. The Belted Goat and McIntyre’s Books are open for carryout only. See more information below…

Fearrington Village is a family-run small business and we very much value everyone who works here. We are committed to making sure we take care of our staff during this tough time, for as long as we possibly can. We hope that everyone out there will do their part to flatten the curve so we can all get back to work.

The bright spots:

The Belted Goat Restaurant will be open with limited hours for online ordering and curbside pickup only. We’ll have even more creative fun menus for the whole family. Details are being worked out in the kitchen now and we’ll post more about that on facebook tomorrow. Order online, pull up to the pickup window, and we’ll pass everything out to you. Orders can be placed at

Roost is opening with takeout pizza ONLY – no beer, no gathering or live music – Fridays and Saturdays , 3-6pm. See that menu here.

McIntyre’s Books is still open – over the phone! For as long as they are able, Keebe and Pete are holding down the fort and providing curbside service (while they maintain social distance). Call 919-542-3030 to see what we have in stock and make your purchase! They’ll be on hand at least 10am-2pm on Monday – Saturday. If you don’t reach them on your first call, leave a message and they’ll get back to you ASAP.

And children’s bookseller Johanna Banana is hosting virtual children’s storytimes Tuesdays and Fridays at 10:30am on @mcintyresbooks instagram stories.

After Fearrington began (and he could drive), he started working at the former farm, busing tables and mowing lawns. He went off to college, worked in the White House under President George H.W. Bush, and earned an MBA from Northwestern University. He then spent a decade working in New York, most recently for Random House, Inc. Greg Fitch rejoined the family business in 2006. He is currently president of the Botanical Garden Foundation, a not for profit which supports the North Carolina Botanical Garden.

Keebe Fitch

Keebe Fitch, Secretary/Treasurer

Keebe has been a part of the family business since the early 1980s. In 1989, Keebe opened McIntyre’s Books, one of the South’s most celebrated independent bookstores, and continues to manage the store. In addition to earning a B.A. in History from UNC, she received an MBA from UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School in 2003.
