Outstanding in the Field

We were beyond honored to be a part of Agritopia’s Outstanding in the Field dinner! It is always so great 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.”

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.
