With over 50 years of tulip growing experience under his belt, Sr spearheaded the idea of creating a u-pick tulip season for the public to enjoy. While scouting land for a brand-new greenhouse, Sr and his son Casey Jr discovered 153 acres of preserved farmland with nutrient-rich soil, perfect for growing flowers. For over 200 years the land was owned by the Rue family and functioned primarily as a dairy farm. If you look closely today, you can still see remnants of its dairy farming past.
In 2017 the entire Jansen family spent months lovingly restoring the farm to its former glory and also began incorporating elements from their Dutch heritage. Coincidentally the land next to the farm became the location of the new greenhouse!
