The harvest is in full swing and fall is in the air as we write this. Virtually all of our vegetables are being harvested. A rather dry June led to a smaller size garlic and onion crop, but not lacking in flavor. Our vegetables can be found in Gnazzo’s in Plainville and Highland Park Market in Farmington if you cannot come out to the farm.
Apple picking wagon rides begin Saturday, August 31 and continue every weekend into late October. We are also open for rides Labor Day and Columbus Day. Please call or visit us on Facebook for picking varieties. Hours for the wagon are 9:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Our beef is being featured at two events this fall. On Sunday, September 8, Southington Community Cultural Arts is presenting a farm to table dinner on the Town Green. The beef brisket being served was donated by Karabin Farms. On Thursday morning, September 19, the American Beef Council “Beef Checkoff” has asked Karabin Farms to provide the beef cuts that a chef will prepare and serve to fair attendees at the Big E during the demonstration. We view this as quite an honor to be selected to represent New England beef.
Pumpkin harvest will begin around September 14, and we will have a good supply up to Halloween.
Mum sales have started and numerous school and social groups have found this to be an easy fundraising project. Our retail price remains the same as last year; 4 for $20.00 plus tax.
Turkeys have benefited from a drier summer. Our Toms are very vocal. We are already taking orders for Thanksgiving. We are very proud of the quality of our turkeys which is the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Last year, we had many folks interested in larger Fraser Fir Christmas trees. We located a source for 10 to 12 foot Fraser Firs. They will be available in a special section of our tree display area.
Prepared meals, heat and serve using our meat and produce has become a very large piece of our family business. In a hurry, don’t do fast food, heat and serve one of our all natural meals. We offer Turkey Pot Pie, Chicken Pot Pie, Shepherd's Pie, Meatballs, Biscuits and Gravy, Eggplant Parmesan, Eggplant Rollatini, and for an appetizer, Buffalo Chicken Dip.
