Farm Profile: Johnson Farms Plants & Pumpkins

July 21, 2014

Johnson Farms Plants & Pumpkins is hosting The Great Pumpkin Run: Kansas City for the 2nd year in a row. Located 30 minutes south of downtown Kansas City, the farm offers visitors a wonderful escape into the countryside. With 140 acres, there is no shortage of fun activities to enjoy!

When arriving, visitors are welcomed into their gigantic greenhouse. Rows of flowers add a wonderful touch of color and are sold at a great bargain (their motto is “More Flowers for Less Dollars”). In the fall, they transition to a full fledged pumpkin patch with a ton of activities.

A few of our favorite features:

Pick your own pumpkin. Grab a provided wheelbarrow, head out to the pumpkin patch, and find that perfect pumpkin. A fun experience for any age!

Barnyard Grill. Johnson Farms Plants & Pumpkins has a rockin’ food menu. Items include turkey legs, pulled pork sandwiches, apple cider, and mini pumpkin donuts. Nom nom nom!

Jumping pillow. A huge, orange jumping pillow is a ton of fun for the kids (and adults!) Hop on and see how high you can jump!

Tons of activities coupled with a great food menu equals the perfect fall day. If you are joining us at The Great Pumpkin Run, you will want to plan on sticking around for a couple hours to take it all in. See ya there!
