Why to Shop at Johnson Farms

Johnson Farms Plants and Pumpkins exists to provide only the highest quality plants and produce in a beautiful, relaxed setting. Two generations of Johnsons collaborate to run two very different seasons of business - a greenhouse operation in spring and a pumpkin patch in the fall. Since both seasons are heavily dependent on the land and the weather we employ sustainably wise growing methods in the greenhouse and outside in the soil.

So, why should you drive out to the farm this spring, especially if you're never done so before?

1)  When you visit Johnson Farms you will meet our knowledgeable staff. They are friends and neighbors and have a deep passion for what our farm provides for the community every year. And, as you'll discover, their passion is contagious.

2)  You'll be impressed by our selection, prices and organization. Have you ever walked into a garden center and felt claustrophobic? Not here. We grow what we know will grow in Kansas City. And, it's at an affordable price in an easy to shop atmosphere. Can't find it? Our staff will lead you to it and/or suggest an alternative.

3)  Johnson Farms is a short, pleasant drive to 177th and Holmes. Forget those funky, winding back roads. We're just 15 minutes south of the Three Crossings (the intersection of I-470, I-435 and U.S. Highway 71/49). Look for the wide-open blue sky!

4)  We grow what we sell, and we do a really good job. Growing good stuff is a must when your season is shorter than nurseries in the heart of suburbia. Visiting us early is really important since our great prices and superior products often sell out quickly. When you see our everyday fill-a-flat discount you'll understand. We always refer to "bathing suit sales." If you want the top to match the bottom you need to buy early! (Okay, if you're a guy reading this you may not get it but suffice to say... visit early for best selection.)

5)  Like to save money? So do we! We send discounts, specials and important news to customers who provide us with their email address. This is a no-brainer just click on the newsboy in the header of this page.

When you buy from Johnson Farms you're supporting a local farm mindful of the environment, passionate about sustainable living, and all the while offering beauty for the home at affordable prices. We look forward to meeting you soon

Gleaning Event 2012

Here is a picture of some of the people who attended our second annual Gleaning Event here at the farm on Saturday. They collectively are responsible for harvesting around 7 full bins of produce for Harvesters to bestow upon agencies in the next couple of months. Thanks to all who participated. May the blessings come back to you in more ways than one.

Marry Me Bri!

We're happy to announce the engagement of Second Lieutenant Nick Tygard to Bri Hanschu. It happened in the pumpkin patch on Satuday, 10/27. After looking for the perfect pumpkin, she found these and said YES! Congratulations and many blessings on your marriage.

They were all well exercised after harvesting these two wheelbarrows.

Jackson's family's annual visit

I knew these folks looked familiar. They come at the beginning of the season when it's quieter and they can search the field for these gorgeous fruits of the vine. Thank you to Jackson and his family for making us part of their harvest tradition. 

Come join us as we celebrate fall's blessings.

Have you ever seen such a happy harvester?

Our friend Brenda with the first fruits of harvest from our fields. We trade Brenda artwork for pumpkins and flowers, and she ran right over today when she was given the go-ahead to gather up a wheelbarrow of fall's bounty. All this will be available for our guests beginning Saturday, Sept. 22. Come out and perhaps you'll meet one of three artists upon whom we rely for adding their artistic touch to the farm. Open from 9 am to 6 pm, Saturday and Sunday...

Pumpkin Popper captured in action

A customer named Aaron Beck captured Jim Johnson blowing off some steam, or shall we say, some pumpkins. Super cool shot! Thanks for sharing!

Vegetable Gleaning Event participants

The Decker Family came out today with intentions of pumpkin harvesting and playground fun. Dad came too! Mom listened to the details of the gleaning event, and decided that sure was a good deal, headed out to the vegetable field and discovered how much fun she and her family were having, then she asked if they could come back tomorrow! Here's their first go at vegetable harvesting; not bad at all, boys! 

UPDATE: NO GLEANING NEEDED ON FRIDAY: REGULAR ADMISSION POLICY WILL BE IN EFFECT

Painting Pumpkins Pink

It's that time of year again. Our second annual Family Fun Festival benefitting cancer patients in need through Midwest Cancer Care. Come on out and stop by their table for information on prevention, treatment and support options. WHile you're here, sign up for a raffle, visit with Whistle the Clown, have your characterture drawn, face painted, or just try to spot Gnathan The Gnome (WHO?). All this Sunday, Oct 2 from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is $10 for ages 3 and over. All the other weekend fun as usual too: pig races, Pumpkin Popper and Pumpkin Chomper.

Go watch them dye the fountains on Saturday, and visit us on Sunday for a plethora of PINK!

Somebody topped Andrew today!

Donna of Container Creations hunted, harvested and hauled in all five of these wheelbarrows today. (Okay, so that would've been quite an impressive feat! She had some help from us farmhands at the end.) Somebody's doorstep is the intended location for most of these. It was nearly 600 lbs. of pumpkins. What a dame! If you want the big ones, don't wait too long before you come to harvest. Open Mon-Fri, Noon to 6 pm; Sat and Sun, 9 am to 6 pm.

Cider Slushies in a pumpkin sipper

Evidently this drink is so delicious that you don't put it down even if you're getting your picture taken. Aurora said "Cheese" with the straw still stuck between her teeth! Glad you had a good day here, Aurora!

Visit to Boys Grow

We finally had a chance when both our and Boys Grow schedules met up, so we took a drive out to KCK to take a look at their operation and hand over the check that our customers in July made possible during our blow out benefit. These boys along with the help of two mentors planted, tended and are now harvesting tomatoes, peppers, herbs and even sweet corn! They hope to manufacture a Boys Grow line of salsa and learn to market the product. Click here to see the NBC action News piece.

Keep up the good work, boys!

The secret is out...Johnson's is the place for quality, selection, service and price!

The Johnson Family has been in the farming business for over thirty years, and we’re excited about sharing the beauty of our 140 acre farm with you. For Fall 2010, we will be presenting a plentiful harvest from 60 acres of pumpkins and decorative produce, as well as hardy mums. We are a greenhouse in the spring, a summer produce purveyor in the summer and a pumpkin patch in the fall. We’re proud of our family farm and want to share our enthusiasm with you. The Johnson Farm provides your family an opportunity to escape to the country and take pleasure in nature’s bounty. We look forward to seeing you time and time again.
