Outstanding in the Field comes to Scott

2011s Outstanding in the Field at Scott Heritage Farm

  • 2011's Outstanding in the Field at Scott Heritage Farm

On October 16, Scott Heritage Farm will host Outstanding in the Field, part of a national eat-local celebration that began 13 years ago in Santa Cruz, California and has toured each year since. The premise is to literally bring the diner to the dinner. Long family-style tables are set up in the fields of a local farm, and a guest chef (in our case, Jeffrey Ferrell of Ashley's) prepares products from the host-farm. After cocktail hour, diners tour the farm, and then everyone — farmers, chefs, event organizers and diners — share an on-site meal. Jim Deneven, the Outstanding in the Field founder and organizer, travels from event to event on a vintage bus, with an ever-changing crew. This is Scott Heritage's second year to host the evening. Last year, Arkansas Times sent Kat Robinson to check things out.

No word yet from Chef Jeff and what he's planning this year, but we'll let you know as soon as we get in touch.

Scott Heritage is a 30-acre, community owned farm about 20 miles southeast of Little Rock, with an adjoining plantation settlement. The event starts at 2 p.m., and tickets are $180 a person.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.

  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
