The Johnsons Corner Farm has hayrides and orchards filled with pick your own pumpkins, apples, strawberries, blueberries, peaches and sweet corn. Lots of family fun on-site too.
Johnson's Corner Farm offers great family opportunities throughout the year. You can stock up on yummy goodies in the Farm Market, and sesonally pick pumpkins, apples, and other veggies. At Christmas you can purchase your trees, roping and wreaths. Kids will have fun playing in the Discovery Barnyard which features play areas and creative play.
We visited this weekend for their Christmas activites. We had so much fun! Santa is available for pictures in the Farm Market. Bring your own camera, because there is no charge for visiting Santa!
In the evenings, the grounds are lit up with brilliant lights. They offer musical light show hayrides, which was something unlike anything we've ever done before! Climb aboard the wagon which plays Christmas music and the lights are in time with the music. Lines get long but moved relatively quickly.
You can also purchase tickets for the animal yard and Discovery Barnyard. During Christmastime you can meet one of Santa's reindeer, Prancer! Kids will love playing on the playgrounds, riding the pedal carts and playing in the general store. Families can purchase S'mores kits and roast marshmallows around the firepits.
Inside the Storytime Theater, Mrs. Claus gathers the children and reads Christmas stories. Next store in the cafe, grab a bite to eat and enjoy some live music!
This was a great way to spend a couple of hours as a family getting into the Christmas spirit.
Today was our second time visiting Johnson's Farm's, Discover Barnyard. Our first time was during the Christmas holidays and we had a blast then, so over to the farm we went for a spring time outing. I had my three girls with me, ages 10, 7 and 5.
We started out our visit feeding the animals. I think those four legged friends saw my girls coming because a few of them greeted them at the fence line making the girls all the more excited to keep the corn coming. They really enjoyed watching the goats put their mouths, oh so expectantly, at the bottom of the tubes catching every grain they possibly could.
Next, the girls and I made our way over to the Discovery Barnyard. The climbing was non-stop for them as they started on top of a mountain of boulders and finished at the top of a rope tree. The crowds were few (it was dinnertime!) so the girls and I had the opportunity to drive the go-carts and have a little race of our very own. We got to take some pictures on top of a tractor and then headed on our way.
We made a potty stop before leaving the barnyard area and I have to say, with little ones, it's always a pet peeve of mine to go into public bathrooms. But this one was clean! A huge plus in my opinion, especially in a play area.
This trip was a short one, but you can be sure we'll be heading back to Johnson's soon!
By the way, the flowers in the greenhouse were beautiful and priced great too!
During the fall we always pay a visit to Johnsons Farm. The kids like to go and pick apples. We take them home and make apple pie for everyone to share. We also stop by for pumpkin picking during the Halloween season. We are able to pick out the perfect pumpkin then take it home for carving and decorating.
We absolutely adore Johnsons farm and go there many times during the year! They have an awesome playground, give hayrides out to pick whatever fruit (or vegetable is in season), have many fun activities during the year, a corn maze in the fall, and wonderfully delicious food in their farmer's market! It is family run and owned and is beautiful, clean, and a favorite place of ours to visit! The kids love feeding the animals in the petting zoo and I love seeing the smiles on their faces!
I really enjoy going to this farm with my daughter. They always have hay rides out to the fields for pick your own crops, and around the holidays they always have something special. There also is a few animals you can look at, but there fenced in, so you can't get close enough to pet them. There is a playground, and a few pretend stores the kids can play in. They do have a little food stand, and they have a nice sized store, where they sell a lot of different items. Most things in the store are a little expensive, but they do have a lot of nice stuff. There's always something going on, and I always have fun.
My family loves to spend an afternoon or evening "down on the farm" at Johnson's. Beyond the petting zoo and playground area, there are hayrides to the fields to pick the produce of the season, from strawberries to corn to apples to pumpkins. We enjoyed bringing our infant son to the evening events last summer, where there was live music. He liked the activity and seemed to enjoy the short hay rides, where we picked apples and later pumpkins. Top off your visit with an ice cream cone or cider donut. A great place to bring out-of-town guests for an afternoon of fun.
I grew up coming here to pick apples, pumpkins and more. The farm only gets better each year and now there's all sorts of fun things for my 2 year old daughter to enjoy now.
Be sure to take a hayride or head over to the Discovery Barnyard. In side the Barnyard, you'll find pedal go-karts with two different play areas. One for smaller kids and one for the bigger ones. There's a Pretend Farm, a Tee-Pee Town and special toddler areas if your little one keeps getting run over.
There's also a petting farm and obstacle course for older kids that my daughter's too small for right now, but not in a couple of years.
The staff here are fabulous and you'll want to check the calendar because they've got a ton of great seasonal events throughout the year. Our favorite is Santa and Prancer Day when real reindeer come and throw a cookie decorating party at the end of November for all the kids.
