Holland Ridge Farms: Growing Our Greenhouse Tulips

Many of you know Holland Ridge Farms for our u-pick flower seasons – tulips in the spring and sunflowers in the fallWhat you might now know is that Holland Ridge Farms was born from our parent company Holland Greenhouses Inc. This wholesale growing business was started by our founder, Casey Jansen Sr when he was just 17 years old. Casey came to the United States from Holland with nothing but his growing experience and a dream to spread his passion for tulips. Today, Holland Greenhouses grows and ships millions of tulips and other flower varieties to supermarkets up and down the East Coast.

Where we Grow 📍

After we saw how much you loved receiving our tulips last spring, our heads were already spinning to think of ways to offer you tulips whenever we can. There aren’t many greenhouses in the country that grow tulips domestically in the fall and winter, but we are one of them! Our tulips are grown in our greenhouse opposite the farm in Upper Freehold and our original location in Monroe. Since we grow right here in New Jersey, that means you get your tulips quicker, in the freshest condition possible.

How we Grow 💦

Our greenhouse tulips are grown a little differently than you may expect. Though we plant the tulips at our farm in soil, we plant these hydroponically. This means they don’t require any soil and are planted in nutrient-rich water. This helps us reduce our carbon footprint as it is a more sustainable growing process. Our greenhouse was actually recognized by New Jersey and earned Environmental Stewardship recognition for going above and beyond compliance standards. Along with this process and a few other tricks and tips, we’ve perfected our tulip growing so our customers will always have long-lasting and beautiful blooms.
