What COVID protocols can I expect in the cut-your-own tulip field?

As a Pick Your Own Farm, we follow all MDAR requirements to maintain safe distancing in the fields. We will continue to stagger guest arrivals to keep to these required safe-distancing measures. You will also find hand-washing and DIY sanitization stations throughout the farm. All buckets and scissors used in the field will be sanitized between uses. If you feel more comfortable, you may use your own scissors and basket. Alternatively no scissors are necessary. Stems may be pulled from the earth with bulbs in tact.

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:

  1. The purchase of a minimum of 1 ticket. Tickets go live approx. 72 hours in advance.

  2. Email events@ciderhill.com so we may communicate your presence with field attendees.

  3. If you are looking for a private experience with fewer people in the field, we encourage you to book the last time slot of the day at 4:20 pm.
