The Palladino family has owned and farmed the land since 1951, when the farm was purchased by Grandfather Nunzio Palladino. The land has been actively farmed since 1845. Originally the farm was a dairy operation until 1965 when it was converted to a cash crop and beef operation as it is today. The Carley family is also third generation farmers as Dan Dimon married the farmer’s daughter, Melissa Carley. Dan Dimon and his father-in-law still run their dairy farm while the two families do their crops together as Palladino & Carley Farms.
