Ricks Hobbyfarm



We a group of R/C enthusiasts who have the privilege of flying on the grass strip of Rick's Hobby Farm just south of New Richmond, Wisconsin. 

It is one of the premier facilities in Wisconsin boasting a landing strip long enough for a full-scale plane landing (yes, it has been done).  The lake on the property makes for excellent float flying every Thursday night from April to October or for boat and ship raceing.  There is also a first-rate R/C car track with banked corners and enough bumps for the mildest car to become airborne.  Rick has N scale model train layouts in the train shop at certain times throughout the year. Owner Rick Ohlfs built and maintains his "Field of Dreams" with a little help from his friends.  At this time, he mows seventeen acres throughout the summer and into the fall.  He calls the mowing his therapy. This years addition is a world class RC racing track!

The landingstrip, lake and track are open from 10 am to dusk. Every day without any cost. There is no club to join or any fees to pay. Just join us for the fun!

On 6/5/2007 great loss to all of us occured. Norm "OO-OO" Olson passed away and he will be greatly missed by all of us. Our thoughts and well wishes go out to Viv and her family.
