Is the farm accessible?

Most surfaces at the farm are flat, and are either gravel, grass, or mulch. There are ramps for the concession/craft building. The maze is dirt paths, which can get muddy and slippery when wet.

We have a large accessible-only parking lot up front.

We also have one handicap accessible restroom (porta john).

Is there a parking shuttle?

Sorry, no shuttle for parking.  Expect to walk 4-5 minutes at the most to get from any one of the lots up to the main barn.

Can I bring my dog?

Sorry, no animals (except for officially certified service animals) may accompany you on your visit. It’s a liability thing; trust us, we do actually love dogs just as much as we love people (okay, maybe a little more…)

What forms of payment are accepted?

We accept cash, and most all credit cards.  If paying by credit card we charge a 3% transaction fee.  We also have an ATM at the farm for your convenience.  

Is smoking allowed?

We prefer you didn’t smoke at our farm since hay and straw don’t play well with fire.  Thanks for understanding.

Can we bring our own food and drink?

We have a full variety of food, drinks and snacks for sale.  We kindly ask you save your picnic lunch for a day at the park. 

Can I buy donuts for my special event?

We would love to hook you up with our sweet treats.  We offer bulk sales of donuts for your event.  Please call the office 989 752 3133 and speak to Dar, or send her an email dar@johnsonsgiantpumpkins.com. 

I want to work here. How do I do that?

Who do I talk to about selling my crafts at the farm?

Awesome!  We love working with all makers and crafters!  Send an email to: gretchen@johnsonsgiantpumpkins.com

I had a bad experience at the farm. Who do I talk to about it?

Things don’t always go as planned, sometimes it isn’t all rainbows and lollipops.  We want everyone to have a wonderful experience but it doesn’t always happen and we want to hear about it.  The only way we can get better is to listen to the good AND the bad.  Please share your story of what we can do better and we will do our best to live up to the challenge.  Give us a chance and I’m sure we will win you back.  

Please send all comments to mike@johnsonsgiantpumpkins.com
