You might remember a few weeks ago, I told you my family was preparing for our first visit to Johnson’s Corner Farm. We invited you to join along as we helped them kick off their Easter season. To our writing team and readers, who joined us thank you. Here’s a little glimpse into our visit.
With so much to do, I wasn’t sure which way to head first. Thankfully, Marcia gave my boys and I a quick tour. Then, we met up with the others to explore Johnson’s Corner Farm more.
We started with the Animal Farm. We fed sheep, goats, and chickens with ears of corn given to us when we got our tickets and from a bag Rebekah had brought. My boys liked sending the food down the tubes to the animals. What a great way to avoid my kids being nervous about feeding the animals or germs being passed back and forth.
After feeding the animals we moved onto the obstacle course in the Animal Farm area. All of our kids had a great time
- climbing on and through pipe slides,
- walking on the tire climbs,
- balancing on the balance beams,
- finding their way through the rope maze
- and being wacky on the “Wacky Bridge”
I have a ton of pictures from this area in our Facebook Gallery, but here’s one of my favorites.
Then, we got our group together for the tractor ride out to the Egg hunt area. (More information on that is available here. ) My boys loved how big the tractors were and found the eggs real quick. They couldn’t wait to open up their bags of goodies.
We took our picture with the Easter Bunny and headed over to the Discovery Barnyard. Just look at all our kids enjoyed. This could fill an afternoon itself.

We finished up our trip, with a stop by the store to pick up our free ice cream and bounced between the wooden cutouts, where I tried to get all 3 boys to face in the same direction for a picture. How do you think I did?
It was a great first visit. I know it won’t be our last.
