Bloomsbury Farm has not always been the unique agritourism destination it is today.
Bloomsbury Farm is located at the home of Dave and Karen Petersen, and began as Hagan Farm. Hagan Farm
was homesteaded in 1856, by Joseph Hagan, Dave's great-grandfather. The farm began with a diverse array of
livestock and crops. The 400-acre family farm has been passed down from generation to generation. In
1982, Dave was the 5th generation to take over the operations of the farm. In 2007, he and his wife Karen
bought the farm. Petersen Farm now farms over 3,000 acres of corn and soybeans, in addition to operating the
agritourism business known as Bloomsbury Farm.

Abbe Hills Farm is also the home of Abbe Hill Open Pollinated Seed
Corn. The heirloom yellow dent corn has been grown on this eastern Iowa farm since 1903. Open
pollination (OP) is an ancient technique for making improvements in our food crops. The wind is responsible
for moving pollen around the field each July, while Laura is responsible for selecting the best ears to save for
seed for the following year. Seed for Abbe Hills OP is sold all over the upper Midwest to farmers who want
the best quality feed for their livestock.

The Fincel Family has been farming since 1885. The
Fincel farm was originally located on the north end of Dubuque near John Deere. The size of the original
farm was about 5 acres, and grew to 17 acres in the 1920's. The farming operations were moved to the
present location in East Dubuque, on Frentress Lake Road, to expand from 17 acres to 100 acres, when John Deere
bought the original farmstead in the mid 1960's. Frank Fincel (IV), like his father, grandfather,
great-grandfather before him, have shown what it is to truly work in a family business and lifestyle, and their
legacy of sweet corn and produce is a pillar in the history of Dubuque. Frank's wife Carol, sons Frank
(V) and Craig, and daughter-in-law Sarah are all fully involved in the family farm as their way of life.
With over 125 years of family farming knowledge and experience, the Fincel's strive to offer only the best when
it comes to their sweet corn and produce.
