9th Annual Christmas in the Barn Sat, Dec. 24, 2016
Please join us for our annual Christmas in the Barn service at the farm. Lord of Love Lutheran Church pastor Meggan Prosser-Gebhardt will officiate a simple, inspirational Christmas Eve service to help you start out your blessed holiday in the right frame of mind. A live reenactment of the Christmas Story accompanied by acoustic musicians will be followed by cookies and warm refreshments, and you will still have time to get onto your other activities for the evening. Registered and physically challenged guests will be seated first; 15 minutes before the service we will open seating to unregistered parties. Standing room will be available for latecomers and overflow.
We've had a tremendous response to our worship services this year. There is an optimum number where everybody is comfortably accounted for, so in theory, the 2:00 and 4:30 are filled up. Having said that, there's nothing that keeps people from not showing up for any number of reasons. So we've attempted to handle the numbers beyond what we expected by doing the following:
- Allowing all ticketed guests first entry up until 15 minutes before the start of each 2:00 and 4:30 service. After that, we will allow non ticketed guests to enter along with ticketed guests. We have an extra tent attached to the barn for standing room after all seats in the barn are filled.
- Adding an extra, non ticketed service at 3:15. Attendees of this service may still visit live animals, and partake of warm beverages and treats, however, there will not be a live reenactment that accompanies the scriptural story, sermonette and carols we sing, so it should only last about one half hour, as opposed to the 45 minute live nativity service.
We hope this helps you and your family find a suitable solution to coming to the farm to worship Baby Jesus with us:)
Please dress appropriately for a cool climate in the barn. Our animals await your visit:)
Closed for the season...

Thanks for your patronage. See you in spring 2017 for lovely plants for your home and landscape.

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!
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!
Here’s a picture of one of our antique tractors getting ready to pull wagons of folks up to the pumpkin patch. First pull up starts on September 20!
See you soon!
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.
