The Art of Play and Palate

After mingling with Southern artisans and sporting personalities, clay shooting, falconry, fly casting, horses and hounds, lively music, and fine Southern cuisines, we can certainly say we had a blast. Thank you to all who attended as well as our sponsors, chefs, artisans, musicians, vendors, and supporting staff for bringing to life the Art of Play and Palate at this year’s Field and Fire.
