The Scene:
For two centuries, the Fearrington farm has dotted the landscape between Pittsboro and Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The farm, now a vibrant village consisting of shops, restaurants and a country inn, still features rolling pastures, farm animals, the dairy barn and silo, and other farm structures. Several of these original buildings have been re-adapted and now form the heart of the Village Center. The rustic charm is escalated by the Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond service provided by The Fearrington House Inn and Restaurant.
