Our weekend at Fearrington Village

This weekend we were in Pittsboro NC for a friend's wedding. They were married in Fearrington Village which is coincidentally where Dave's uncle lives! We went up on Saturday morning - it's about a two hour drive from Charlotte.

There are these little artsy wind contraptions at several areas of Fearrington.

There is great shopping. This is McIntyre's bookstore. It was great! We got a book for our friend's who are having a baby girl in October.

This is a gift, interier design, and girly shop called Dovecot and The Belted Goat - which is a coffee and sandwich shop. I would love the live in this neighborhood! They had a chopped salad bar here, live music and they had THE BEST yogurt parfet!

Everything in cows here! Fearrington is known for their black and white striped Galloway cows.

We had lunch at the Granary. Dave got a burger and fries..... Yummm.
The Inn at the Fearrington has a restaurant that is 5 star so all other restaurants on the grounds have the same 5 star chefs so the food is out of this world amazing!

I got a salad with salmon, sweet potatoes, pears, candied walnuts and a lemon vinagarette - oh and blue cheese!! It was awesome although I regretted the cheese decision later - gosh I love cheese!

Dave walking with Uncle Blue.

This is inside the book store - cozy right?

Here is where the wedding reception would take place later that night.

Great view! The silo marks the entrance to the Fearrington Village.

The wedding would take place on the other side of this garden. Landscaping was gorgeous here!

Not only do they have striped cows, that have striped goats. Or atleast that is what they were going for - some are just black and white spots.

This goat was preggie.

I thought this little tike was posting for a picture but he was really just peeing. lol

The cows!

Cows hugging.

There were misting spouts over this block and they loved to stand under them.


Here the wedding! It was hotter than blue blazes.

Note poor Dave and the back of his knees! HOT.

This was the reception at the Fearrington barn. Gorgeous!

They had bobble heads of themselves for their cake topper!

Just like the food everywhere else - it was nothing short of delicious at the reception! They even had shrimp & grits with andoulle sausage - which was my favorite! Oh and the beet goat cheese salad! I need to learn how to make both of these.

I always love checking out the center pieces. These were very earthy and fit the barn feel!
