Rows and rows of tulips.
Pink. White. Yellow. Too many to count.
The only thing missing is a windmill or else you would believe you were walking through the famed tulip fields in Holland.
Instead, you are deep in the heart of Texas.
Welcome to Texas Tulips, a tulip farm welcoming visitors each Spring in the Dallas/Ft Worth area.
Travel down the back roads inside Denton County and you’ll find Texas Tulips ready and waiting for visitors. Located in the small town of Pilot Point, it’s a charming location, and a MUST visit this Spring and next.
As with many farms, this one has a personal story.
Pieter Koeman runs Texas Tulips, but it’s beginnings really do stem from his childhood and growing up in The Netherlands. It’s there where his parents, Piet & Afra Koeman, started a horticultural farm and specialized in tulips. While his father has now passed away, Pieter carried on the legacy when he moved to the Dallas/Ft Worth area with his own family.
Texas Tulips was born.
We visited Texas Tulips last year more towards the end of the season, but there were plenty of fields still filled with tulips.
Beautiful pastel baskets were provided, but I imagine during their peak weekend times, they might run out. You might just want to bring a basket of your own.
Tulips have remained just $2.50 per stem and last year we picked a lovely bouquet to use for our Easter tablescape.
If you don’t want to pick any flowers, Texas Tulips is an amazing place to take photographs.
You’ll find both amateur photographers and professional photographers at this venue (professionals must pay a fee).
As you might expect with the beautiful Spring weather, we spied many children in their Easter outfits. (TIP: Just know that you will be walking through fields so white shoes might get a little dirty)
