Planning on visiting Texas Tulips this year? Here's everything you need to know about this beautiful, fun, and affordable tulip farm including the best time to visit, what to wear, and more.
My first visit to Texas Tulips was in March 2017! Ever since then, when the spring season rolls around, we know our trip to pick tulips isn't too far away. It's a great kid friendly outdoor activity to look forward to all year long.
Texas Tulips is a flower farm with about 100 varieties of tulips to choose from. It’s a privately owned farm by Pieter and Petra Koeman, a Dutch family who moved to north Texas in 2015.
Where is Texas Tulips?
Texas Tulips is located about one hour north of Dallas, TX at 10656 FM 2931 Pilot Point TX 76258. Perfect for a quick day trip!
What is the best time to visit Texas Tulips?
Tulip season at the Texas Tulip farm typically lasts from late February through late March or early April. However, it all depends on the weather! Rain, storms, and ice freezes can all cause the field to close early.
The best time to plan your trip to Texas Tulips is in the middle of March. The weather is generally nice with a breeze and the flowers are in full bloom. Weekends and spring break can draw long lines, so plan your visit during the week for less crowds.
What to know before you go
Texas Tulips is a pick your own tulip field, meaning you get to stroll up and down rows of tulips and actually pluck your own straight from the ground.
The farm is open daily, Monday through Sunday from 10AM-8PM. There's a $5 entrance fee per person. Parking is free in a dirt parking lot, right in front of the farm.
During the week, veterans and seniors receive a discount entrance fee of $7.50 per person that includes 3 tulips. Plus, they offer a free entry fee for children under 12 months!
Each stem is $2.50! Don't forget, picking is purchasing. When you are finished in the field, your tulips will be put in special gel then wrapped in pretty paper.
What to wear
I recommend wearing something comfortable and layer up! Every time I've visited the tulip field, it was cooler and windier than expected.
You'll see a mix of trendy outfits, dresses, and athleisure wear. If it's rained recently, I suggest pulling out your rain boots.

Before the end of the season, I really encourage you to take a trip and "visit a little piece of Holland right here in Texas!" It's a relaxing and unique experience out there because you truly feel like you've left North Texas.
