Ploughman’s Picnic

Peeler Farm

Hosted at Peeler Farm, we will journey out to Floresville, Texas to bring Field Guide guests back to the land.

Peeler Farm cowboys will welcome guests with a hayride to the pasture where we’ll spend the evening surrounded by the family’s large herds of humanely raised cattle, sheep, and baby water buffalo as they graze on green and golden pastures.

The three-course dinner will kick off with a ploughman’s plate – a locally crafted charcuterie board, including jam, cheeses, bread, pecan bars, mushrooms and more! For the main course guests will be served meat raised by Peeler Farm cooked over Mill Scale smokers and open fire grills alongside delicious side dishes, made by Chef Jorge Hernandez of San Antonio’s Hotel Emma. The picnic will conclude with ice cream desserts using Oro Bianco ice cream, made from the milk of water buffalos raised on Peeler Farm.

Local makers from the dinners ploughman’s plate will be at the event, available for guests to purchase additional favorite items from the picnic.

Drink options will be plenty! Attendees will receive a welcome drink to start the night while mingling with with local makers. During the three-course dinner service, drinks from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Still Austin, Spiritless, Desert Door, Calidad, Rambler and more will all be available at interactive drink stations.
