Our Family

Adrian Hobbs is a very practical kind of guy quite solution orientated. He can lend his hand to anything and is often working out how to fix something or is making something better. He is referred to as a bit of a ‘whizz’ at technology and believes computers are a great tool to be used on the farm. His love of technology extends to him making the most of his pilot’s licence, flying over the farm whenever he can.

Katrina Hobbs is a woman who can achieve much. Though she is an extremely talented business woman, Katrina still enjoys baking and playing the piano. She enjoys Toastmasters and is looking forward to the day when her children can attend the fortnightly meetings with her. Currently she entertains her listeners with stories of children, organics and farm life. She was the Queensland representative for the 2014 Australian Year of the Farmer and is also the past Youth Alumni of the year for USQ. She has spent time on the Organic Industry boards, mono-gastrics and export panels and is well respected in the organic industry.

Although young, the Hobbs children all believe their future is in farming organically and they all profess to want to farm in different areas. So we look forward to what the future will uncover. Our children love to be part of what is going on and help man the stands at the local Agricultural shows, field days, festivals.

The children have organic chickens, guinea pigs, guinea fowl, milking cows and dogs. While organic cattle and sheep are also on the family farm. The family look forward to growing some organic pumpkin and corn and perhaps more organic vegetables in the back paddock.

Brenton would love to invent some organic games for his IPad, because it too may be better for him if it was Organic.

Whilst the baby of the family Reuben loves his ‘ganic’ milk from Leila the cow, and can already milk them better than some of his siblings!

Corinne and Renee have some problems with allergies and love the Hobbs Family Farms organic chicken because it keeps them healthier and organics is better for them anyway. These 2 girls make the most of an opportunity by taking their organic guinea pigs with them to various events, selling them from the stands, alongside Mum and Dad.

Meanwhile Emily is taking a practical approach in school, developing commercial advertisements for her assignments that promote the benefits of organic produce. This really brings the topic to life, whilst educating her class and teachers about organics and Hobbs Family Farms.

All the children love show and tell. They can always be counted on to educate those less knowledgeable about the benefits of farming organically. What could be better than the healthy life we lead at Hobbs Family Farms?

Hobbs Family Farms – Because we care.
