R. B. Fitch and his late wife Jenny purchased the Fearrington Farm in 1974. With a gentle hilltop, dotted with wooden farm structures, mature specimen trees, and open pastures, the Fitches began crafting a village center where guests could relax and enjoy the gorgeous natural landscape and the local birds and other wildlife that inhabited the area.
When the Fearrington House Restaurant opened in 1980, Jenny began designing and installing our gardens. The Fearrington gardens are now home to eight bee hives, hosting over 250,000 bees. These bees pollinate the flowers and create a nuanced honey with a flavor profile that changes with the season.
Fearrington gardeners collect honey in small batches every three to four weeks to ensure that the honey reflects the unique flavor of what’s in bloom at the time. This honey flight is a compilation of flavor profiles from throughout the year, each reflective of what was in bloom at the time of harvest.
