Bloom Report

We are closed. Saturday May 13th was our last day open. Hope to see you next year!

Check our homepage for general information including ticket pricing etc.  Check out our FAQ's & Tulip 101 to prepare for your visit.  We expect to sell out even during the week and hate to turn folks away. Pre-purchased tickets are required for Saturday-Sunday and highly recommended Tuesday-Friday.


Update 5/13/17 :  We are cancelling our event tomorrow - Sunday May 14th because of the upcoming weather forecast and we are running out of tulips. We are refunding everyone who has not used their Sunday May 14th ticket automatically. We expect lots of rain and wind gust up to 40mph, which is dangerous for our visitors with all the tents we have set up. We are so sorry that we cancel on Mother's Day, we know how much you have been looking forward to it. Please watch the video for more details. Keriann & Jeroen

Update 5/11/17 :  We are completely sold out for this year... We are open until Sunday, but won't sell tickets at the door. We are sorry if you missed this season, we are very bummed that we can't stay open longer. Farming is not easy and Mother Nature is hard to predict.... if you have not visited us yet, we hope to see you next year!  -Jeroen & Keriann

Update 5/10/17 :  We have had some magical moments and lots of fun but we will be saying goodbye until next year after this Sunday. Our early field was a big success and the 2nd field started off doing well but the extreme rain combined with the frost damage from the crazy cold March month did not create the usual happy tulips we grow. We planted 400,000 tulips in the large U-pick and unfortunately most of them have bloomed out before they could be picked.  This is a huge loss for our farm, but luckily we can still harvest the bulbs.
 

Our show garden looks spectacular and we are allowing you to pick from parts of it! We promise that everyone who is planning on visiting between now and Sunday will still go home with beautiful tulips and a big smile!

Update 5/9/17 :  We have another beautiful week of tulips. We will stay open until Mother's Day. More details in the video!

 

Update 5/5/17 10pm :  We have another sold out weekend, do not visit us without a ticket. Please plan accordingly when dressing for visiting us this weekend! We got some heavy rain today and there is a high chance you will see some mud and puddles... We ask that all guests please wear shoes with good traction, preferably rain boots!!!!

Update 5/5/17 : Visit us this morning! Overcast days make the colors pop and it looks like it stays mostly dry until noon, this afternoon we expect heavy rains...

Update 5/3/17 : It is gorgeous here at the farm!

 

Update 5/2/17 : The late field is open and the rain stopped! We are open rain or shine but we know you prefer the shine.

 

Update 5/1/17 : We are closed today. We are working hard to make everything ready to open the large field tomorrow!

 

Update 4/27/17 : It is Tulipmania! We are sold out for tomorrow ( Friday April 28th) and also for this weekend -Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 30th. There are no tickets for sale at the door. Thank you in advance for your help and understanding. Our parking lot can only handle so many cars and we don't want to overcrowded. It is our high priority to make it enjoyable for everyone!

Update 4/25/17 3pm: Want the whole field for yourself? We are still open and there is nobody! it is still raining, but luckily the wind held off.

Update 4/25/17: Weather Alert from 11am-2pm! We are expecting high winds and may need to close between 11am and 2 pm due to safety concerns for our visitors and staff. If you have tickets for today we suggest coming later in the day or use them on another week day.Check back for updates.

Our show garden in the early field starts to bloom very nicely. This is the last week that our smaller "early blooming field" is open, but we start to get some color on our later blooming field, which will open sometime next week!!!

Update 4/23/17: We are closed Monday April 24th, tickets for next weekend are already sold out. The field is looking good, it looks like quite a bit of rain Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday it will be wonderful weather again!
