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).

Sorry, no shuttle for parking.  Expect to walk 3 minutes at the most to get from any one of the lots up to the yard.

Sorry, no 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…

Certified service dogs are welcome, with the exception of our petting zoo area.

We accept cash and most credit cards. If paying by card, our credit card machine company charges a 4% transaction fee.  We also have an ATM at the farm for your convenience.  

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

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

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.

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.
