It’s turkey time! No need to spend hours in the kitchen cooking up Thanksgiving dinner and all the trimmings. Leave it to creative chefs in Southern Indiana to whip up a gobble-worthy feast for your guests.
Check out these options for carry-out and dining at local restaurants. We also included a few fun Thanksgiving-themed events to mark on your calendar as well.
Joe Huber's Family Farm & Restaurant, Borden
Each Thursday through Sunday in November, you can enjoy a full Thanksgiving dinner at Joe Huber’s Family Farm & Restaurant. The dinner includes oven-roasted turkey, homemade dressing, pumpkin pie and more! The meals are available for dine-in, carryout and delivery. A special buffet on Thanksgiving Day will be served as part of this annual event.
Huber’s Orchard & Winery
Don’t forget the sides and sweets! Huber’s Orchard, Winery & Vineyards is closed on Thanksgiving Day, but you can swing by their Farm Market Bakery before Thanksgiving Day to pick up some of their delicious baked goods, including their almost-famous Cheese Bread, freshly baked Apple Dumplings and pies. And of course, no Thanksgiving is complete without Huber’s wine for your Thanksgiving feast! Try their Estate Grown Traminette, Generations, or Starlight Rose. You can also go for one of their seasonal favorites, like Spiced Apple Wine or Pop’s Reserve (Pop’s Reserve will be released one week before Thanksgiving Day.) Choose from these wines and others.
