Hobson's Farm

Hobson’s Farm is an agri-tainment entrepreneurship aimed at creating family fall traditions.  Simply put, Hobson's Farm has a party in the corn every fall that keeps visitors returning year after year!  The seasonal melding of entertainment and agriculture entices families to venture out of their usual surroundings and into the cornfield.  Whether church, work, school, or biological, families of all kinds make a trip to Hobson’s Farm an annual fall tradition.  A yearly visit to Hobson’s Farm appeals to the entire family because it bridges across the generations; children attack the corn maze and other attractions like a virtual video game while their elders reconnect to treasured memories of growing up on a farm.

The main attraction Hobson’s Farm has to offer is the seven acre corn maze, “a gold and green amusement park ride that stands still” as People Magazine puts it.  The corn maze is more than just a life-sized labyrinth for people to explore; it is a cornfield transformed into a giant work of art.  Hobson’s Farm has turned a cornfield “canvas” the size of seven football fields into images of a covered bridge, a horse and buggy, an Apache helicopter, and more.  Although combined to create the intricate design, the paths make up two distinct phases offering varying degrees of difficulty to challenge a multitude of guests.  In addition to the maze, Hobson’s Farm offers many more exciting attractions such as hayrides, farm animals, a corn box, a pumpkin patch, a corn cannon, campfire sites, a corn train, a roller slide, a tube swing, and more.  Hobson’s Farm provides an ideal location for educational school field trips, team-building corporate outings, engaging church fellowship, and of course, wholesome family fun!

Amish Farms

Several Amish families have moved to Parke County from Pennsylvania to retreat back to a more rural community. The families have purchased many farms in the area. Many families raise dairy cattle.  You may also see their horses and mules which are used as their means of transportation as well as the power for their farm equipment. The Amish do not use tractors or cars, nor do they have electricity in their homes. They use gas for their lights, for the engines that run their milking equipment and to pump water. They hold their own church services  and have their own school. The children attend school through the eighth grade and then return to the farm. Many stores are located throughout the county and are open daily except Sundays.
