Arcadia is honored to be associated for the fourth year with Outstanding in the Field's nationwide tour in September. Chef Kyle Bailey and Chef Tiffany MacIsaac -- the talented and award-winning chefs behind Birch & Barley, Bluejacket, GBD, and Buzz -- will once again be cooking in the field.
But there's a change of meadows: After three gorgeous years at our home base at Woodlawn Mansion in Alexandria, Outstanding in the Field wanted to showcase another great farm. So our dinner this year will be held in Middleburg at Hunger Run farm.
Our farm director Stephen Corrigan recently moved to Hunger Run where we have started a larger and more intensive vegetable production program to meet the rapidly growing appetite of our Mobile Market customers for local, sustainably grown fresh fruits and vegetables. It's an exciting project, as Arcadia is putting another old farm back into production.
Never fear: We continue to farm, host dinners, and hold field trips and events at Arcadia at Woodlawn! It's our home base, and we are deeply connected to the progressive agricultural and social history there -- a history we are proud to be adding to as a mission-oriented non-profit organization.
Keep an eye out for our soon-to-be-announced Annual Spring Farm Dinner at Arcadia at Woodlawn! As always, Arcadia Members get first crack at the tickets. It sells out quickly, so don't hesitate when we make those tickets live!
