Beautiful CNY Tulip Field Opens Early for You Cut Bouquets
It’s that time of year. Tiptoe through the hundreds of thousands of tulips in Central New York and cut your own beautiful bouquet.
The U-cut tulip fields are open in Westmoreland, a week early. The flowers are usually ready at North Star Orchards by early May. This year the field is open on Friday, April 28 from 8 AM to 5 PM for early cutting.
The walking trail to the tulip field is about a 1/2 mile round trip and parking is available at the market.
You'll need clippers or scissors to cut your own tulips. DO NOT pull the bulbs out of the ground or they won't grow back for everyone to enjoy next year. You'll also need a basket to hold your tulips. Boots are recommended in the fields. And you won't want to forget your camera to capture the experience and beauty.
Admission to the tulip field is free but there is a $1 cost for every stem you cut. Fresh-cut bouquets will also be available in the market for anyone unable to cut their own for $12.
