The Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum

4109 N.E. Pleasant Valley Rd, Gladstone, MO

The 22-acre farmstead is located on the eastern edge of Gladstone, MO and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.  The 1830s era Missouri farm was preserved by the City of Gladstone for ongoing community use and education and opened to the public in April of 2013. Extension Master Gardeners partner with
Atkins-Johnson Farm and the City of Gladstone to plan, plant and maintain a 60’ x 60’ heritage garden of vegetables, herbs and flowers, all plants grown before 1900.  In addition, the heritage garden includes raised beds for herbs, strawberries, asparagus and other perennials.  There is a 30’ x 40’ pumpkin patch and an area of apple trees, raspberries and blueberries.  Beehives on the property improve pollination in the gardens and or-chard.   Produce from the gardens is donated to Saint Charles Food Pantry and Synergy Services.  Extension Master Gardeners also teach gardening classes at the annual Children’s Garden Day and the Atkins-Johnson Country Fair, a daylong event that attracts over 1200 visitors.
