Bloomsbury Farm was homesteaded in 1856. Dave Petersen, the 5th generation to take over the Farm - along with his wife Karen, started the agri-tourism business in 1994. Their daughters Jessica and Samantha are also both a big part of the business. In years since, it serves as a destination for thousands of Eastern Iowans each year who want to get away from city lights and take in a beautiful, living, breathing farm.


Take some pictures with our animals, munch on our famous hand-popped kettle corn, get lost in the corn maze, be amazed by the pumpkin cannon, and so much more - there is an abundance of unique activities for people of all ages!
