“Farm to table” is the name of an activity that encourages people to eat locally grown food. There is also a group that brings “table to farm”. This traveling group is called Outstanding in the Field. Its aim is to connect people to the land and to create a kind of restaurant without walls.
Jim Denevan got the idea for this kind of food service ten years ago. Jim Denevan’s brother is a farmer and he himself is a former chef. He thought the idea of a meal served right at the farm made sense, though not everyone agreed. “But I wanted to make the idea work, so I decided to cross the country—I went all the way across the United States and set the table in farms and ranches and on beaches, and all the places where food comes from.”
He recently prepared tables for more than a hundred people at Briars Farmstead in Virginia. He and his eight-member crew arrived the night before. Chefs from a local restaurant prepared the dinner.
Matt Szechenyi and his family operate Briars Farmstead. He said “This type of event connects us with a lot of enthusiastic people, people that will—we can form relationships with in the future. And this type of small farm business thrives on relationships.”
Guests bring their own plates to the meal. When they arrive, the farmer shows them around. “These are free-range chickens. We want them to eat as much pasture as possible because that’s the magic.” The tour of the farm ends at the dinner table. The meats in this five-course meal come from Matt Szechenyi’s farm. The vegetables and other ingredients come from nearby farms. Guests and local farmers sit together. Alex Bogel came with his family. He said “It is also especially wonderful to sit at a table this big with all these people. The sense of community is wonderful.”
Jim Denevan and his team have served almost thirteen thousand people. He plans to expand the operation.

A French-language daily in Belgium has issued what is thought to be Europe’s first 3D newspaper. But you must read it with a pair of special glasses.
All the photos and ads in La Derniere Heure’s (DH) special edition were given a three-dimensional effect (3D效果), but the next remained the same. DH’s editor said there were no further 3D plans because of the costs. Reviewers in France spoke highly of the paper, but they said the overall result was “far from perfect”.
Editor Hubert Leclercq said it took two months to get ready for the special edition, which had a higher than normal print run of 115,000 copies for the stores selling newspapers. “We hear about 3D cinema, television and video games, so we took up the challenge,” Mr. Leclercq told the AFP news agency.
According to PC World’s French edition, readers could get the best results by holding the paper 50cm from the eyes in a well-lit area. “It takes a few minutes to get used to pictures in 3D,” it said, nothing limited the quality of the viewing lenses (镜片).
