Can I get donuts? I love donuts!

What is the condition of the field? Is the field handicap accessible?
The Tulip Field is a farm field. It may be wet and muddy, so we advise guests to dress appropriately. While we’ve worked hard to manicure it, there are bare spots and unlevel ground. While most of the field is flat, this year’s planting also includes a small hill. We will have golf carts able to shuttle guests if needed.
Please remember that the conditions of the field are dependent not only on the weather the day you visit but the days leading up to your visit. If it has rained in the days prior to your visit, boots are always a good idea (especially if you wear the ones with the trendy graphics!)
Is there food there? I’m already a little hungry!
On weekends Kuipers Family Farm’s food stands will be open along with local food trucks for a huge variety of food selections. On weekdays a food truck will be onsite.
I would like to do photography sessions at the tulip festival. How does that work?
There is no official timeslots for photographers. We advise photographers and their clients to purchase tickets like normal. If you have additional questions on this, please send us a message on our Facebook Page.
