May 18 - Last Day Open!

May 17th see below some pictures of today. Still lots of pretty tulips available. However we are nearing the end of our season which means every day less color is showing in the field. 


May 15th 7pm 
below some Pictures we took this evening at 7pm. Still a lot of color in the field and many beautiful tulips for picking! 
Tomorrow we start our end of season 50% off ticket price. Tickets are $10 and kids 17 and under are free! Our field is still very colorful but some flowers are not good for picking anymore. We also have some picked over areas.  As of now we have many beautiful photo ops, but it is hard to predict how long that last. We hope and think at least until Wednesday. 

May 15th 1pm  we have a beautiful & busy weekend! Lots of smiles leaving the farm :) 




May 13th 3pm  
This morning was perfect picture weather, cloudy, warm and no wind! Thanks Emily Iverson for making these awesome shots! 


May 13th, 2022 
We are making ourselves ready for the last Peak Bloom weekend. The French Tulips, also known as "Cottage Tulips" are finally starting the bloom! We have had a very cool spring and these Single Late tulips finally show their full color! Some of the names are cities in French, like Menton, Dordogne and Avignon tulips. 

 

May 11th, 2022 8pm We can’t get enough of this, these sunsets in Preston CT feel soooo magical!
Finally good weather on the horizon! The next 7 days it looks like perfect weather to tiptoe through the tulips! Maybe Saturday morning a shower, but it doesn’t look like a rainy day. 




May 11th, 2022 - video below is made with footage of May 11th. 
We are open 7am today! We have more “Early Bird” mornings this Fri/Sat/Sun! The field is gorgeous, see video below!! It will be in peak bloom for the next week or so. We recommend coming sooner than later because every day people are picking and earlier varieties might bloom out if you wait to visit us.

May 8th, 2022 We had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!
The next 7-10 days we are in peak bloom. However we always recommend to come sooner then later! The field is gorgeous - our Preston CT location has almost 600,000 tulips. It’s our largest u-pick field ever! 


May 7th, 2022 
Mother’s Day weekend! It is 11am right now and it has been mostly dry. A bit windy so dress warm!!


May 3rd, 2022
Co-owner Keriann Koeman picked some amazing tulips from the field today! Purple Lady, Sunlover (double yellow) , Flaming Flag and Silver Parrot!


May 2nd, 2022 A birds view of our giant tulip field :) 


May 1st, 2022 Grand opening day! The next 2-3 weeks our fields will look gorgeous! We are open 7 days a week from 10am to 7pm. Be recommended visiting us during the week when crowds visiting the farm are smaller. 



April 26th, 2022 What's blooming today (and ready to pick for our soft opening dates 4/29 & 4/30) 
Our Grand Opening is on Sunday 5/1, when you can expect to see many more varieties burst into bloom, as vibrant color erupts across all corners of the farm.

 

April 25th, 2022 in some areas we start to see some color in Preston, but overall it is still pretty green. We do think by this Friday we are ready for a soft opening - which means not the whole field will be in bloom but enough to make a great u-pick experience! 


April 21st, 2022
We planted our late blooming tulips in Preston - because of the cooler temperatures, these late bloomers are slowing down quite a bit. We expect to open around May 1st, with a possible "soft opening" a couple days earlier. Mother's Day is going to be gorgeous in Preston CT!!

The picture below shows a lot of flower buds, but a mostly green tulip field. They do love this cooler weather, it is good fir the quality!

 We 

April 16th, 2022 Our first blooming tulips in Preston! We planted mostly late blooming tulips, but also a bunch of mid blooming tulips. Our grand opening in Preston is likely around May 1st, but we plan a soft opening in Preston once we have the mid bloomers in full bloom. A soft opening means that we have only a small area of our field in full bloom. More details later!

April 10th, 2022 No blooming tulips yet in Preston, we did see a blooming crocus! We did not plant this crocus on purpose, but sometimes Dutch growers have another bulb mixed in our tulips by accident … :)

We do think that it is going to be a relative early Spring. We updated our “expected opening date” to May 1st. Our Preston location is opening a bit later then our Exeter RI location because we planted mostly late blooming varieties in Preston CT.


April 1st, 2022 
A cloudy, but beautiful morning at the farm. The tulips look great!

March 18th, 2022  Leah & Inga are plotting and planning our Preston location. Each year we plant the bulbs in a new field, which means we need to re-think placement of tents, entrance, exit, traffic flow etc 

 

March 11th, 2022 Gotta love "mud season"  I lost my boot :) 

March 11th, 2022 Looking forward being back at the farm daily! Even without blooming tulip field the sunsets are amazing in Preston! 

 

November 20th, 2021 We planted the last bulbs of the season, yay!

November 11th, 2021 I love, love, love these early mornings in Preston!

November 7th, 2021 A beautiful early morning in Preston. We are preparing the soil for planting. 

October 27th, 2021 Testing the planting machine - ready to rock n' roll! 

October 14th, 2021 Kees is checking out our new John Deere tractor with "buddy seat". I am looking forward to many hours driving together!

October 14th, 2021 Checking out the Preston farm with Kees. Always fun to say hi to these girls.

I forgot to mention on my comment… We went to Your “Preston Wicked Tulip Farm” ! It was our First time ever at any Tulip farm! Your Volunteers and staff people were all so professional and nice to us and everyone around us! Ever row of tulips were so easy to walk through, pick our tulips and take photos! Our “Time there will be treasured”! Your Awesome for making our Mother’s Day special! I took lots of nice photos even though the sun wasn’t out in the early evening! We were ready for sun with our Mother’s Day Hats! Hehe Thanks Again for a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday! My daughter brought me for my Mother’s Day gift… what a treasure it was! Your Tulips are so beautiful, some I’ve never seen the shapes and colors before! We will return next season and I plan to order some of your bulbs today to plant in our new Home in Ledyard! Thanks again for a very fun Day… Tip toeing through your Tulips!
God Bless, Marie & Christy 🥰❤️💛💚💜

“Thank You for a wonderful Mother’s Day”! Your Tulips are so Beautiful and fresh! My Daughter brought me to your farm yesterday for a Mother’s Day gift! So much fun picking our own Tulips and some extras to share! We were amazed at all the different types, shapes and colors of Gorgeous Tulips. I have never really been a Big Tulip fan, I’m not sure why! “But I am NOW”! Hehe I will have to order some of your bulbs and start my own little garden! What a great farm you have set up! We will see you next season! God Bless and Happy Tip toeing through the Tulips! ❤️💜💚💙💛💗😎

A friend introduced me to the Exeter, RI location last week. What a beautiful sight and what gorgeous tulips. It was truly uplifting after such an awful year with the pandemic. I signed up for email notifications and will definitely visit you next year. Thank you for doing what you are doing and bringing joy to lots of people.
