John and Tammy Peterson started Hubb’s Farm in 2008, shortly after the birth of their son, Luke. They wanted to create a family friendly agritourism destination for all ages.
The farm is located on land in Sampson County, N.C., that has been in Tammy’s family for more than four generations. Her parents, James Hubbard and Sue Butler, grew produce, tobacco, grains and other row crops on the land. Hubb’s Farm is lovingly named for Tammy’s father, whose nickname was “Hubb.”
Back in 2008, they opened as Hubb’s Corn Maze and gradually added activities and attractions, developing into much more than a maze and changing the name to Hubb’s Farm. The entire Peterson family – John, Tammy, Luke and their grown son, Will – participates in the decisions and operations of the farm.
Hubb’s Farm is open in spring and fall/winter with a wide variety of events and activities, including the popular 10-acre corn maze. The farm also offers educational school tours and popular packages for corporate outings, birthday parties, family reunions and more.
