Feathernesters' proprietors, Marc Goswick and Tony Turner, scour their local farmers' market for fresh produce and eggs they transform into elegant spreads that have earned praise from RVANews. Marc, an avid gardener and cook, draws on homegrown recipes handed down from his mother and grandmother to craft the tasty creations found in Feathernesters' bakery. Among these creations, the signature buttermilk pie reigns supreme, earning a mention in Richmond magazine for the care Marc takes when making each pie fresh by hand every morning.
During afternoon tea, fingers emerge from their bowling-ball hiding places to pluck sandwiches and fresh scones from a two-tiered tea tray as loose-leaf tea blends steep in personal pots, peppering the air with floral aromas. Brunch in the tearoom plays host to a smorgasbord of all-you-can-eat goodies, including baked Virginia apples with cinnamon and brown sugar, seasonal fruit, and Southern cheese grits. After meals, patrons can peruse Feathernesters’ 5,000-square-foot shop laden with vintage jewelry, handmade folk art, and hand-painted furniture arranged in displays designed by Tony. Marc and Tony also welcome parties to the tearoom, with events for all occasions from bridal and baby showers to tea parties for children aged 5–10 and child-sized cornhusk dolls.
