The 2017 CT locations will be held at Waldingfield Farm on September 12th and The Hickories on September 13th.

"Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure – literally a restaurant without walls." Their mission is to re-connect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it. The other meaning of Outstanding in the Field is outstanding as in the best. Buy your tickets here on March 20th. 

Waldingfield Farm
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 @ 3PM

Tickets on sale March 20th at 11:00am PST | 2:00pm EST

Host Farmers: Patrick & Quincy Horan, Waldingfield Farm, Washington, CT
Guest Chefs: Jason Sobocinski & Alex Lishchynsky, Caseus, New Haven, CT

From our table, the view is plenteous organic vegetables and green rolling hills beyond. On a clear day you can see all the way to Danbury. The Brothers Patrick and Quincy work hard to grow things the right way. Organic farming means growing without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, or any other synthetic substance. The only fertilizers they use are natural: composted cow manure, sea kelp, and "green manures" like clover, vetch and rye grass. Healthy soil means fresh produce loaded with vitamins and minerals, from land that can continue producing. For the skilled chefs at Caesus, this will be their third OITF/Waldingfield appearance.

The Hickories
Wednesday, September 13, 2017 @ 3PM

Tickets on sale March 20th at 11:00am PST | 2:00pm EST

Host Farmer: Dina Brewster, The Hickories, Ridgefield, CT
Guest Chef: Tyler Anderson, Millwright's, Simsbury, CT

Dina’s new trout pond is complete and stocked with fish. The pond is one of several fascinating ongoing projects around the farm. Dina will show us and tell us, including donning waders for a quick fly-fishing demonstration. Before becoming a farmer, Dina taught poetry in Manhattan. The tour will highlight the farm as well as Dina’s considerable powers of description. First-time OITF guest chef Tyler Anderson of Millwright’s is a 2017 James Beard Award Best Chef: Northeast semi-finalist.
