We were beyond honored to be a part of Agritopia’s Outstanding in the Field dinner! It was magnificent to see everything come together so flawlessly.

Outstanding in the Field was created by Jim Denevan in 1999. It’s a traveling feast/dinner tour that lands in the best farms in the world, sets up a classically beautiful long table outside, and fills that table with food and drink from the community they are celebrating. Jim describes it as “A traveling feast with a central vision of farmers, chefs, cheese makers, ranchers, foragers and winemakers in delicious communion with the people they sustain.” http://www.outstandinginthefield.com
October 21st and 22nd, 2014 the Outstanding team diligently setup, cooked, pruned and prepared for Arizona’s Agritopia location. Agritopia, a community in Gilbert, built around a community farm, and charmed with a coffee shop, and the famous Joe’s Farm Grill was the perfect setting. A long table was setup through the orchard, low lying branches trimmed back, free range chickens within ear shot. It was lovely.
Stout Tent provided a lounge tent, furnished with comfortable couches, and lit with candles and lanterns for after dinner conversations.
