Fields of Dreams

If an invite to have dinner on the farm sounds like a picnic table, baked beans, and dirty-denim affair, rethink that idea. In Colorado, farm-side suppers are staged from late spring through fall, and they are some of the finest, most romantic meals you’ll ever experience. Imagine dining al fresco at community tables, viewing fields that spread toward the horizon, and savoring food that was harvested hours before it lands on your plate. Discover the magic of authentic farm-to-table cuisine. 
July 2012

Isabelle Farm in Lafayette stretches across more than 80 rolling acres of stunning farmland. Dinners, which are often capped with a bonfire, are held under white, peaked tents at the edge of the farm’s organic fields. The pop-up kitchen’s centerpiece is a deep firepit that heats and cooks most of the dishes. Among this summer's events, look for Zolo Grill chef Brett Smith's Southwestern dinners ($75). And on July 31, Outstanding in the Field, an organization that’s been running culinary adventures since 1999, will take over the farm for one of its internationally acclaimed meals ($210). Yes, you should buy tickets right away. isabellefarm.com
