The Upstate’s home for fall family fun
How will your family make memories this fall? Make memories for a lifetime at Johnson Farms.
Just a short drive from Greenville and Spartanburg, South Carolina, Johnson Farms in Inman features hayrides, a corn maze, a pumpkin patch, a playground, a gem mine and pedal cars. Spend the day with us! There is plenty of fun to be had on our farm, and lots of memories to be made. We also offer school field trips and birthday parties, as well as a country store concession with something for everyone. At Johnson Farms, come for apples, pumpkins or other fresh produce — or just come for fun! Spend the day with us; there are plenty of fun things to do for your entire family. Because we are a working farm however, please leave dogs at home.
How ’bout them apples?
For years, Nivens Apple Farm offered apple picking. And, while we were able to incorporate many of the Nivens traditions in our farm, it’s hard (well, almost impossible!) to move apple tress. So, we planted our own. Our apple trees are growing well — and will be ready to bear fruit in 2017. This season, however, we do not offer apple picking. But we do offer a wide variety of produce in our store.
