Fearrington’s Gardens

Welcoming visitors for over 40 years

In 1980 when the Fearrington House Restaurant opened, Jenny began designing and installing our gardens. What you see today is Jenny’s legacy. The gardens are an integral part of the life at Fearrington, and it all began with a dream. The grounds include about 60 garden beds connected by brick pathways, an herb garden used by the chefs at The Fearrington House Restaurant, raised cutting beds for use in floral designs, and several greenhouses.

Today, we think Jenny would be pleased to know Fearrington Village is now a certified Bird Friendly Habitat at the highest level by the New Hope Audubon Society. Migratory and resident birds bring life and movement to the many lovely garden spaces.

Vegetable & Herb Garden

In 2015, Fearrington Village created its own on-site vegetable garden to provide fresh produce for The Fearrington House Restaurant, maintained by Fearrington’s culinary gardener. The products from the garden are harvested daily and lead the direction of the seasonal fine dining menu. In addition to the vegetables being grown, Fearrington has a separate herb garden. The herb garden is a collaboration between our chefs and gardening team.

The Belted Barnyard

Cows, Goats & Chickens

For two centuries, the Fearrington farm and its rolling pastures have dotted the landscape between Pittsboro and Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The farm, now a vibrant village consisting of shops, restaurants and an award-winning inn, still features rolling pastures, farm animals, the dairy barn, silo, and other farm structures. Several of these original buildings have been re-adapted and now form the heart of our Village Center.

“The atmosphere is wonderful. It is not a huge property so you can enjoy all that it has to offer but it is so unique and you feel as if there is no one else around. It is truly the best place that we have ever stayed.”
