Welcome to Texas Tulips, a tulip farm welcoming visitors each Spring in the Dallas/Ft Worth area and new for the 2020 season, San Antonio.
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.
Travel down the back roads inside Denton County and you’ll find the original location of Texas Tulips ready and waiting for visitors. Located in the small town of Pilot Point, it’s a charming location north of Dallas 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 to help you collect flowers, 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.

Texas Tulips Photography
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 get a day pass and pay a $25 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)

Last year we found that they had created a little maze out of hay for kids to play in. There were benches and portable bathrooms as well.
TIP: Be watchful over your children. I can’t tell you how many kids I saw walking through the middle of the tulip rows destroying everything in their path.
This is one of our favorite Spring family traditions and we will be heading back to Texas Tulips soon! See you there!
