Welkom Vrienden! (welcome friends) It’s officially the new year, so it’s only [...]
As porky the pig once said, “that’s all folks!”. It’s hard to believe that after months of anticipation, planting and preparation, our u-pick-sunflower season has officially come to an end. Not going to lie, it’s definitely a bittersweet time at the farm.
It’s all things sunflowers here at Holland Ridge Farms! We can’t believe it’s already been a week since we opened our doors for the first time this year. Seeing the excitement on all your faces as you walked through the entrance and picked your flowers truly makes what we do worth it.
Did you know that starving Dutch soldiers actually ate tulip bulbs during WW2? When they were prepared correctly, the taste was comparable to potatoes or onions! Though we don’t recommend eating them now, it’s no surprise that the bulbs have become a delicacy to squirrels, deer, and other critters alike.
The countdown is on! Next Friday we will be open and ready to welcome you all back to the farm for the first time this year. We’ve been working hard over the last few months to add new and exciting things!
Can you believe it’s already been a month since our last newsletter? Though it seems cliché, time really does fly when you’re having fun! August has traditionally proven to be a busy month for us, and it was no different this year.
With everything going on at the farm we thought why not bring you along for the ride! This is just the first installment of our monthly recaps which will give you a behind the scenes look and sneak peek into everything going on at Holland Ridge Farms.
You can now bring a little piece of Holland Ridge Farms home with you all year round. Many of you know we only allow visitors at the farm during our tulip festival in the spring and the sunflower festival in the fall.
In the beginning of 2020, our team at Holland Ridge Farms was working hard and gearing up to make our third annual Tulip Festival the best one yet. Sadly, all our planning came to a screeching halt within the matter of weeks, as we waited to see how COVID-19 would unfold.
We have made the decision to move in a new direction for this year’s tulip festival.
