Video from Field Day's June 3rd dinner at Preston Farms and Winery
Jimtown Dinner / July 24/ 6pm
For those of you not familiar with Jimtown, it has been an Alexander Valley landmark for over 100 years. This historic property is not “in the wild” per se but a unique place where time appears preserved.
This space has been shuttered since pre-pandemic, and is looking for the next leader to usher it into its next life, but until then let's celebrate the sweet spot it is.
Saturday, July 24, you will see our Field Day bus, parked against this special backdrop, serving up an amazing meal created by the talented Katie Powers! Once again we will gather with friends new & old to sit at long tables together. We get the extra boon of an extra special addition of an amazing guest acoustic guitar & song for the first part of the evening.

Preston's Farm & Winery Dinner
Saturday / Sept 25th / 5:30
Hello again to you all!
We have been participating in some amazing private dinners, over the last month but we are back to host 'one and all' once again, this time on one of my favorite sites in the Dry Creek Valley.
Preston Farm & Winery.
For those of you unfamiliar, it is a family-operated, organic property in Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Valley. The 125 acres are nestled between a meandering salmon-spawning stream & a sleepy stretch of former wagon trail leading to town. We will be pairing this dinner with their wines, and the majority of the meal will incorporate their produce.
Also, back from the very first Field Day dinner made in Hugo,
chef Aaron Koseba is back! Prepare yourself for a thoughtful and inspired meal bringing together a collection of his talents with seafood, fermenting, and uniquely paired flavors.
We will sit on bier garten tables out under the sycamore trees and hear more about this agrarian farm/winery all us locals love, and enjoy its bounty.
Reserve and Purchase your seats on Venmo @fielddayca
$160 per person, wine pairing included

As this is an outdoor dinner, when seated eating or drinking you will not need to be masked, but please be mindful when gathering in groups, or going indoors, to distance or mask up. As things continue to evolve, we are asking for all guests to be vaccinated at this time.
We will require proof prior to entering the dinner.
You will be seated next to others on benches, and dining potentially with people you may not know. We cannot stress the importance we have on vaccinating enough. Our staff is vaccinated, and will be masked, but please understand there are still risks during this time.
We look soooo forward to seeing you again.

The land at Preston is home to some of Sonoma County Bee Company’s bees as well as a new herb drying barn to be utilized for the expansion of SCBC hive inspired herbal remedies product line. The connection from seed to flower to bee will be felt.
A gentle and tasty introduction to beekeeping in Sonoma County with Sonoma County Bee Company’s founders. Woven throughout the evening and courses we will discuss our methods in our beekeeping practice and how we decide when it is safe to take honey.
Guests will enjoy honey and other hive products on their plates and among the tables. An immersive experience for the senses, in a beautiful wine country setting.

Marty O'Reilly + Katie Powers
Saturday / June 3rd
Candlelight concert by Marty O'Reilly! A bay area musician whos songs sound bluesy but not blues, folk but not folk, soulful but not soul. Marty’s voice is beautiful and unique, his lyrics stark yet lush over gritty electrified guitar, melding beautifully into genre-defying music within the vast definitions of Americana.
The evening started with passed appetizers and a glass of a stellar Preston wine that will prepare your palate. Then all sat for a three course meal, that culminated in a candlelit concert from Marty.
