Our Story

Meet the Hobsons

Since 2004, the Hobsons have invited visitors from all over to join their adventures on the farm. That year, Corey’s “crazy” idea to cut a maze in the corn, just a few farm animals, and a lot of extra pumpkins began what would become known as Hobson Adventure Farm.

Corey grew up on a dairy farm in rural Rockville and knew he wanted to stay nearby. Shortly after getting married, Corey and Patricia built their house on property just down the road from the old, shuttered dairy farm. Corey and Patricia have raised their three children (Lindley, JJ, and Lillian) right along with the farm and are excited to have the next generation joining in growing and managing Hobson Adventure Farm.

Continually adding more activities, animals, and events, Hobson Adventure Farm is now west-central Indiana’s premier destination for family fun. We currently have over 20 activities, 50 animals, and have events almost year-round.

From our family to yours, welcome to the farm!
