Outstanding in the Field grew out of Jim's "farmer dinners" which took place during the mid 1990s at tiny Gabriella Café in Santa Cruz where he invited local farmers to preside over special meals featuring their just-picked harvest. The first Outstanding in the Field "farm dinner" took place at Mariquita farm in Corralitos, California in September of 1999.
Outstanding in the Field has hosted 115 events since 1999. In 2008, Outstanding in the Field went even farther afield, venturing beyond North America, bringing our long table to selected sites around the world.
