Farm-to-Table Dinners with Outstanding in the Field

Jim Denevan founded Outstanding in the Field (@out_inthefield) in the late 1990s following a series of "farmer dinners" he hosted in Santa Cruz, California. From these dinners, Jim realized that people wanted to learn more about where their food was coming from. Now, over a decade later, Outstanding in the Field hosts farm-to-table dinners all across the United States, and they’re inviting you to join in by following along on Instagram.

Jim and his crew travel the United States in a vintage red and white bus, hosting dinners at local ranches, vineyards and orchards along the way. The crew teams up with farmers and chefs at each location to prepare dinners using local, seasonal ingredients for over 100 people per sitting. Guests tour the site and meet the farmers before gathering at a long table — often in a scenic area such as a mountaintop or sea cave — to enjoy their meal together.
