We have answers!

Below you will find answers to some of the most common questions we get. We want your trip to Johnson's to be a complete success. Please visit our contact page to call us or to send us an email if you have more questions.

When do you open for the season?

Our garden center opens in April and our fun farm typically opens around June kicking off with Strawberry Time!

If I only want to pick produce, do I still have to pay the admissions fee on festival weekends?

Yes. Our festival weekends are one admission fee for everyone ages 2 and up. If you just want to pick, we are open on the weekdays for most produce for a $3 entrance fee.

Why do you have a U Pick admission fee?

Johnson’s is not funded by any city parks or rec divisions. We welcome you onto our land to enjoy the blessing of owning the land and enjoy how we have stewarded the blessing of owning the land. The admission cost helps to cover all the overhead insurance, worker’s living wages and yearly improvements you will enjoy.

What’s included in festival admissions?

Boy oh boy! It would be easier to explain what is not included. Your U Pick produce, concessions stand, and retail store items are not included in the entrance as well as the train and the produce cannons. The jump pad, jump pillow, triple slide, challenge course, corn box, corn maze (fall), duck races, Johnson’s village, blue choo, tram rides to the field, goat village, pipe swing, pedal karts and more are all included for the price of $8 per person.

Should we bring our own containers for U Pick?

Buckets are provided in our U Pick fields. Visit our U Pick page for details on u pick produce prices.
