Flower Picking in the New York Area

Flower Picking in the New York Area

Tulip season is upon us! Here's where you can pick your own fresh tulips near NYC.


As the weather gets warmer, we can look forward to a slew of outdoor activities that we've all been missing throughout the winter. Why not spruce up your home with some freshly picked flowers? While many flowers at pick-your-own farms, including sunflowers, are not available until early summer, tulips are ready to blossom in mid-April and May.  

Please be aware that tulips bloom quickly.  Many farms have a limited time frame of only a few weeks to pick them.  We recommend planning your day trip to pick tulips soon in order to take advantage of this special spring activity.

The following farms offer tulip festivals and pick-your-own opportunities.  All of the farms listed below are located within 100 miles or less of New York City by car. Plan to dress your kids in closed toe shoes in order to make the visit comfortable for all. Get ready to tiptoe through the tulips and celebrate the changing of the seasons!
