Tulip Fest 2022
Tulip picking is closed for the 2022 season. Our wildflower garden opens in early July - late September. Please visit www.ciderhill.com/pick-your-own for upcoming fruit picking.
When will cut your own tulip tickets go live?
All tickets will go live below approx. 48 hours in advance. Expect tickets to become available early-May through mid-May. Picking is weather dependent. Early ticket sales are not available.
How long will tulips last?
As of Friday 5/13, we anticipate tulip picking to end Sunday.
Do I need to purchase tickets in advance or may I just arrive at the farm to pick?
Our farmers monitor fields closely to make sure the best picking is possible each day. Pre-purchased tickets are required allowing us to provide the best possible experience for every guest.
How much are tickets?
Pick your own tulips - $20 per dozen
Non-picking ticket is $5 per person for those that want to enter the field but don't want to pick
NOTE: All individuals ages 3+ require a ticket. Tickets are not required to view the garden from outside the fenced in field. Enjoy the blooms!
Do I get to keep the tulips bulbs and how do I replant them?
Yes, the bulb is all yours! However, this is a flower cutting experience. Pulling the bulb with your flower is encouraged to get a longer stem for larger bouquets. Feel free to replant the bulb with the stem and flower attached for the best chance of regrowth the following year (70%ish). If you just plant the bulb, foliage is possible but flowers are unlikely. Visit the farm store in the fall for our annual bulb sale.

May I book times to draw, paint or photograph the tulip field?
For those who wish to capture images of spring blooms for personal or business uses, you may use the spaces surrounding the garden at no cost. Decorative flower beds will also have beautiful varieties of tulips to enjoy at no cost. For those that wish to enter the field, tickets are required. For professional photographers booking mini-sessions with clients, the following steps are required:
The purchase of a minimum of 1 ticket. Tickets become available approx. 48-72 hours in advance as we watch weather and field.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org what day you will be on the farm so we may communicate your presence with field attendees.
If you are looking for a private experience with fewer people in the field, we encourage you to come at the end of the day closer to 3 or 4 pm.
When does strawberry picking begin?
Strawberry season begins in June followed by blueberries, raspberries, peaches and apples. Plus, the wild cutting garden opens early July.
