Field to Fork



Immerse yourself in a culinary journey through the heartland at Field to Fork, a unique fundraising celebration of local farms, food, and conservation. Set amidst the serene beauty of Rock Springs Park, this gastronomic adventure will unfold under a grand tent, overlooking the sprawling prairie landscape.

Join us in your favorite summer plaid and gingham and delight your senses with succulent offerings from our regional farms such as Schuette Signature Beef. Allow your taste buds to be enticed by a sumptuous buffet of craft BBQ, comfort food sides, delectable dessert and fresh-baked breads, meticulously prepared by revered chefs from Sugarfire 64 SmokeHouse, Clara B’s, Bakers & Hale, and Companion Bakery.

The evening will unfurl with our celebrity emcee heralding the commencement with a jovial “The Tapping of the Keg” ceremony. Attendees will have the pleasure of indulging in a delectable picnic buffet, complemented by an array of libations including fine wines, local beers, and innovative cocktail creations.

Amidst the echoes of live music and joyful chatter, we will auction six exceptional HeartLands Experiences curated for adventures throughout our region. The evening will host a paddle appeal to fund a need within our community.

Initiated in 2010, Field to Fork has grown from a small gathering into our signature fundraising event, drawing culinary enthusiasts and nature lovers from across the region. Our event champions the farm-to-table movement, offering guests a unique opportunity to engage with chefs and farmers while learning about the far-reaching benefits of supporting local agriculture.

We look forward to welcoming you to the tent for an evening of delightful dining and meaningful conservation!
