In full disclosure, this is a sponsored post. We appreciate Johnson’s Corner Farm’s support of Jersey Family Fun and our efforts to share local activities with our readers. As always all opinions are our own.
The air is crisp, the temperatures have dropped and the leaves are falling!
It’s time to enjoy these Johnson’s Corner Farm fall activities.
In our house it’s not October until we’ve picked an apple (or 70) or painted a pumpkin. Sure, you can get them at your local grocery store but memories aren’t made in the produce aisle. Not to mention that obligatory family photo in the pumpkin patch! This year, why not head to Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford where you can get your apples, your pumpkins, and your photo but so much more! You can visit their website with this link.
Top 5 Johnson’s Corner Farm Fall Activities for Families
Growing up in central New Jersey we always headed to an orchard for fresh apples but that was it. There wasn’t anything else going on there, not even the now standard apple cider donuts.
Get your donuts and so many other delicacies at Johnson’s Corner Farm! There’s the sticky but irresistible caramel apples, the comfort of apple pie and something called an apple cider slush that has me heading there ASAP to try it out!
Maybe you’d rather make your own apple confections and you’re just there to pick the best apples around? That’s available too, of course, and at $1.89/pound for the freshest apples you’ll ever taste, be ready to load up your car for apples for days! You can pick Empire, Red or Golden Delicious, Stayman, Fuji, Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Cameo or Gold Rush. Varieties and supply will vary so check the Johnson’s Corner Farm Facebook page before heading out.
We didn’t have apple cider donuts back in my younger days of apple picking and we certainly didn’t have corn mazes! Now it’s one of our family’s fall to-do’s! The Johnson’s Corner Farm corn maze is 5 acres of fun while you hunt for Barnyard Bill’s 8 missing tractors. Don’t miss out – the maze is open weekends throughout October, with admission for $4.50/person.
Picking the best pumpkin is a rite of passage – will it be too heavy to lift or just right? Round or oval? Long stem or no stem? Whether you’re painting a happy face or carving a scary jack o lantern the Johnson’s Corner Farm pumpkin fields will provide and the hayride will help you get it back home! Your porch will look its best!
A trip to the farm means animals too, and Johnson’s Corner Farm has them! The Discovery Barnyard and Animal Farm houses sheep, goats and chickens for petting, but that’s not all. Take a break for the little ones to get their energy out as they play on the climbing rocks, space net, and even zoom around on the pedal go kart tracks! Separate play areas accommodate different age groups and there’s place for parents to rest as well. Admission is $9/child, $4.50/adult. Your crew will go home happy AND exhausted from a day at the farm!
There’s so much to experience at the farm that it was hard to stop at 5 Johnson’s Corner Farm fall activities. You may need to visit more than once! They are open daily, with special hours for the activities weekdays and Fall Harvest Festivals on the weekends. Be sure to check their website or Facebook page before heading out to confirm availability. You can see the calendar of Johnson’s Corner Farm events on Jersey Family Fun as well.
