'Outstanding in the Field' 

Farm to Table Dinner + Farm Tour

 

Was at Boggy Creek Farm on TWO consecutive days this year!!

**TICKETS available at $265 per person**

For its 10th year in a row the crew from Outstanding in the Field delighted guests at Boggy Creek Farm; this time for TWO nights!

Boggy Creek is Austin's original urban farm. Outstanding in the Field first came here in 2005, OITF’s first visit to Texas, and have made a habit of coming back each year.

 

Farmers Carol Ann Sayle and Larry Butler always welcomed us with open arms; they’re family. Sadly, Larry passed in 2018, and now Carol Ann & Larry's daughter Tracy & son Tom are filling her their Dad’s big boots. 

 

Boggy Creek is a “no-till” farm, which means they pay meticulous attention to the health of their soil. The result is a happy, healthy ecosystem and some of the most delicious, nutritious vegetables we’ve ever tasted.

~TuesdayOctober 15th, 2019, 3pm~

Host Farmers: Carol Ann Sayle, Tracy Gibson Geyer (& Larry Butler in Spirit)

Guest Chef: Jesse Griffiths of Dai Due, Austin, TX.

Chef Jesse Griffiths was back in the field kitchen this year. Justly famous for its commitment to hyper-local ingredients and colorful, distinctive flavors, Dai Due has consistently stayed in the press throughout the years, landing a spot on Bon Appetit’s Hot 10 List in 2015.

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019, 3pm~

Host Farmers: Carol Ann Sayle, Tracy Gibson Geyer (& Larry Butler in Spirit)

Guest Chef: Zach Hunter & Jake Maddox of the Brewer's Table, Austin, TX.

Chef Jake Maddox will join us for a gregarious meal paired with local beers chosen by the experts at The Brewer’s Table. We had an opportunity to visit The Brewer's Table this past fall. It was extraordinary. Austin Monthly named The Brewer’s Table Restaurant of the Year in 2018, and we’re excited to welcome Chef Zach for his first OITF experience.

This year East Austin’s beloved Boggy Creek Farm! hosted Preservation Austin's

 'Somewhere in Time' 

Sunday, September 22nd, 5-8pm

We learned about the agricultural legacy of East Austin, sustainable urban farming, and the recent window restoration on the historic Boggy Creek Farm Farmhouse, that was completed over the winter of 1840-1841

Sam Houston dined at this fine home in December  1841!

Tickets included Farm House Tours with Boggy Creek Farm co-founder Carol Ann Sayle, daughter Tracy Geyer & son & daughter-in-law Steve & Lara Gibson along with other special friends of the farm. 

 

Live music from folk/country trio The Almost Readys!

Drinks from Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Real Ale Brewing Company 

Mouth-watering appetizers featured vegetables grown at Boggy Creek Farm

SPONSORSHIPS included complimentary event tickets and recognition.

This marked the ten-year anniversary of Somewhere in Time, presented by Preservation Austin’s Inherit Austin subcommittee.   **Proceeds from the Boggy Creek Bash support our efforts to preserve and protect Austin’s historic and cultural landmarks through awareness, outreach, and educational programs.

 We are amazed that the event sold out as quickly as it did. The incredible support this community has for our urban farms is just heartwarming.

We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon strolling among the crop and visiting the chickens, donkeys and rabbits on four urban farms mere blocks apart. In the fields, farmers introduced their crops, shared their experiences as farmers and answered gardening questions. At each farm, chefs offered tastes of their art, using farm ingredients. Local mixologists, brewers, and wine merchants shared  sips!

'Outstanding in the Field' Farm to Table Dinner + Farm Tour 

Sunday, October 14th, 2018, 2pm     

Boggy Creek Farm

Host Farmers: Carol Ann Sayle (Larry Butler in Spirit), Boggy Creek Farm, Austin, TX. Guest Chef: Jesse Griffiths of Dai Due, Austin, TX.

When we (OITF Founders) first came to Boggy Creek in 2005, it was possible that this event may have been our last. We were eager to tell the stories of farmers and to create a closer connection to our food and where it comes from, but our concept was having a hard time getting traction and we were about to quit. A little kindness goes a long way. Thanks in part to encouragement from Larry and Carol Ann, we didn’t quit. Thanks, Larry and Carol Ann! Our chef Jesse Griffiths of Dai Due in Austin has cooked a few OITF dinners over the last couple of years. Jesse does a great job of working with native and unusual ingredients, and everything on the menu is sure to be hyper-local.

Prizer Gallery Presents the Sixth Annual “Farmer as Artist”

Opening:  Saturday, September 8th, 2018, Saturdays 1pm-5pm during September.

2023 E. Cesar Chavez, East Austin, TX

In its 6th year, this show explored connections between farming and creativity. Local Central Texas farmers shared photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media, poetry, fiber arts, and more.

A special feature at the gallery was a salute to the creativity of Boggy Creek Farm's Larry Butler. Display included a 'barn door' that he fashioned out of reclaimed 1880s bulls-eye moulding. Additionally, paintings by his wife and co-owner of the farm, Carol Ann Sayle, were on display; they all represented their life on Boggy Creek Farm. 

 

Save the Windows of the Historic Farm House Fundraiser

It was a beautiful, breezy afternoon for guests who enjoyed docent-led tours of the old farm house and tours of the crops. Local Chefs from Vino Vino (Ben Schwartz), Texas French Bread (Max MacKinnon), Wink (Eric Polzer) and Eden East (Sonya Coté) provided creative appetizers made from our farm fresh produce. Beverages were provided by Dripping Springs Vodka, Live Oak Beer, the Austin Wine Merchant & Zhi Teas. Over 40 items were donated by the community for the Silent Auction. It was a huge success!

At each farm, chefs offered tastes of their art, using farm ingredients. Local mixologists, brewers, and wine merchants shared sips.

Art and Wood-crafting on the Farm

Ongoing display of farm-related art and wood crafts
in the Farmstand at Boggy Creek Farm

Alternating work includes: Paintings, Prints, Underwater Photos, Farm Photos, Wood Crafts (benches, tables, food platters, etc.) displayed and for sale. The Lumber Yard, right behind the Farmstand, is home to raw real-wood boards, most with "live edges," that Larry mills from trees on our farm in Gause, and from trees being cleared for grazing land at neighbors' farms. Select your boards for making tables, shelves, cutting boards and more! Visit with "Burline" Larry's giant Burl that once lived on a post oak tree at our farm.
