Outstanding in the Field is a group dedicated to reconnecting "diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it."
The Sloans Creek dinner will be the 76th farm event on their tour of North America this year. The event starts at 2 p.m. tomorrow and is $200 per person. The menu includes wine, hors d'oeuvres, a tour, a four-course meal all paired with wines. Guests can also take home one small to medium sized farm animal of their choosing (that last part is a lie, but it's something they should think about).
Sloans Creek is a non-certified organic farm with cattle, hair sheep and goats, which are raised on a forage diet in a "managed grass system." They also have hogs and chickens.
Johnson and O'Hare will pull it all together, in what will surely be a fine local feast.
Dodd City is about 75 miles northeast of Dallas. Get tickets here.
Outstanding in the Field is also hosting two dinners in Austin and one in Brenham, which are already sold out. According to the organizers, this event almost is as well.
