What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept online payment only using all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, or AMEX). We are unable to process cash or checks.
What if I have tickets but I can’t attend the event?
Due to the nature of our events, we are unable to offer refunds. However, you are welcome to transfer your tickets to someone else. Please contact us at least 24 hours before the event with the new guest’s name and information. Otherwise, they are welcome to use your name when checking in. You can also try to sell your seats on our Facebook page; guests often look there for last-minute seats. Please keep in mind that transferring funds is your responsibility.
What is the price per person, and what is included in that price?
Tickets start at $265 USD (plus sales tax and a ticketing service fee), and vary depending on the event. Tickets include a reception with welcome beverages and passed appetizers, a tour of the farm or event site, and a four-course family-style seated dinner with wine pairings. Gratuity is included. All ticket prices are listed in USD unless otherwise noted.
Is there a waitlist for sold-out events?
Because tickets are non-refundable, it is very unlikely that tickets will become available for sold-out events. However, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org within one month of the event to see if any spots have opened up. You can also check our Facebook page for tickets; guests often look there to buy or sell last-minute seats.
How do I make a reservation?
Head to our Events page to view a full listing of our upcoming events. Once you’ve selected which event(s) you’d like to attend, click the “Join Us” button to be redirected to the order page. If there is no “Join Us” button below the event, the event is sold out. When making your reservation, be sure to include all of your contact information so we can communicate with you effectively. You will receive a confirmation email from us as soon as your reservation is complete. Closer to the event, you’ll receive an additional email with pertinent event details and information.
When can I make a reservation?
Tickets for our regular Summer/Fall Tour go on sale March 20th, the first day of Spring. Tickets for our Winter Tour go on sale in early November. As many dinners sell out in a matter of minutes, it’s best to grab your seats as soon as they’re available. All ticket sales end 24 hour prior to the event.

What should I wear to an OITF event?
Our dinners take place on all sorts of natural terrain – in the fields of working farms and vineyards, alongside rivers and seas. Please dress accordingly and remember to wear comfortable shoes. It often gets chilly in the evening (even after a warm day) so please come prepared with a jacket or blankets to keep you comfortable. We anticipate many beautiful sunsets this coming season and recommend you bring a hat or sunglasses as needed. Guests tend to dress up a little for our events, but jeans and casual attire are not out of place.
Do you allow well-behaved dogs at the events?
Due to health department regulations, dogs are not allowed at our events.
Can you accommodate children at the events?
Our outdoor dining experience is intended for adults. Due to the length of the event, the family-style service, and out of respect for all guests, we ask that you do not bring your children.
What if it rains?
All events are rain or shine. In the case of rain, we will find shelter for the table – sometimes this means we find a magical place in a greenhouse or barn. Guests still receive a tour of the farm, so be sure to check the weather and dress appropriately.
Is there alcohol at OITF events?
Yes. The ticket price includes a welcome beverage during reception and wine pairings with our multi-course dinner. We also offer non-alcoholic beverages at all events. For your safety, we suggest that you arrange for a designated driver or plan for a driving service to get you home safely. As events are often off the map, it’s best to arrange for transportation in advance.
Will I be able to see a copy of the menu before I arrive at the dinner?
The menu is revealed at the table. Our guest chefs design the menu in the weeks or days leading up to the event, based on the freshest possible ingredients from the farm or locale. We like to keep the meal hyper-seasonal, artistic, and spontaneous!
Can you accommodate dietary restrictions or food allergies?
Our dinners are best suited for flexible, adventurous eaters! Due to the nature of a shared meal, we are only able to accommodate limited dietary requests. These include vegetarian/pescatarian diets and celiac allergies. If you have other dietary limitations for religious reasons, please email us at email@example.com in advance of your event.
What can I expect at an Outstanding in the Field event?
Events are typically 4.5-5 hours in length. This includes a cocktail reception, a tour of the farm or event site, and a multi-course meal at the table. We collaborate with a celebrated local chef to cook a meal highlighting the provisions of our location – from farm to sea to vineyard to urban garden. Dinner is served family-style with carefully chosen wine pairings for each course. We occasionally host Beer Dinners with beer pairings in lieu of wine, which will be noted in the event description. At the table, you’ll have the chance to dine and mingle with the farmers, winemakers, and artisans featured at the event.
Any other details I should know?
Please keep in mind that there is an implied Assumption of Risk of Damage or Injury at our events. We work tirelessly to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests, but we do encounter a variety of terrains and climates and weather can change without warning. We will send you a reminder email prior to the event with a description of the expected conditions at the event and any preparatory recommendations.
Do you host private events?
We do! We host private dinners all over the country and world for a variety of occasions. From a 1,000 seat table in New York City to an intimate dinner in wine country, we’ve done it all. Click here (hyperlink to Private Events page) for more information on booking a private event with us.
When will I receive directions to the farm and other important information about the event?
You will receive an email from us about two weeks prior to your event with directions to the event location, finalized event details, and helpful hints on what to wear and what to bring. Once you’ve made a reservation, make sure you allow emails from firstname.lastname@example.org in your spam settings so you don’t miss any further communication.
Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes, you can purchase gift certificates here. Gift certificates can be applied towards any public event. Please note that gift certificates do not grant priority access to tickets.
