Fearrington Village

When traveling south on 15-501, halfway between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, you will notice the huge “farm” on the left hand side of the road. The farm’s Bel


ted Galloway cows are noticeable from the road, and many people will stop in just to take a peek at this special place. What many may not realize is that t


his is actually


a neighborhood and housing community in which they can purchase a home!
