Outstanding in the Field 2018 Tour
Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure that travels around the country setting their long table in fields, gardens, beaches and vineyards. Their mission is to promote local food and agriculture and get people out to the farm to see where their food is coming from and meet the producers. Join us in the field at the North Farm, in Geneva, New York, on Wednesday, August 22 for a farm dinner experience not to be missed. Tickets available on the Outstanding in the Field website on March 20.
About Outstanding in the Field
In the summer of 1999, OITF founder, chef/artist Jim Denevan, came up with the idea of setting a table on a farm and inviting diners to an open-air meal in celebration of the farmer and the gifts of the land. He called it Outstanding in the Field.
Guests at an Outstanding feast may find themselves sitting next to a local farmer who grew the greens, a fisherman who reeled in the fresh catch or a cheesemaker who separated curds from whey. Fellow diners at the long table may have traveled from across town or across the country. Many loyal "fieldheads" follow OITF as it travels, using an Outstanding event as the centerpiece for a visit to a place they've never been before or to experience a favorite spot from a fresh perspective.
