RB Fitch

Owner

In 1974, RB Fitch began developing Fearrington, a 30-year adventure which would combine his small-town, know-your-neighbor upbringing with the style and charm of the English villages he had come to love. He and his late wife, Jenny, purchased the 640-acre dairy farm that had been in the Fearrington family for generations and started the conversion of the farm area and its surrounding land into a country village. The original farm house and outbuildings now house the shops and restaurants of the Village Center, while over 1,200 families own homes nestled in the surrounding woodlands and fields.
