How amazing is it that you could experience the tulip fields of Holland right here in New Jersey! This year, I saw tulips at Holland Ridge Farm for the first time. It was such a cute farm and it was filled with so many different colors of tulips. It was a floral paradise! I highly recommend you visit if you are on the east coast!
Here is some helpful information for you to know if you are thinking about visiting Holland Ridge Farm!
Where is Holland Ridge Farm located?
The address to Holland Ridge Farms is 86 Rues Rd, Cream Ridge, NJ 08514. They have free parking located in the field right next to the farm.
When is tulip season?
The opening date is different every year since it depends on when the tulips bloom. But usually, tulip season opens mid-April and it only lasts a couple weeks. Holland Ridge Farm is always posting updates on their website and social media so you’ll be able to know ahead of time when the season is opening up.
How do you purchase tickets?
Tickets are available on their website to purchase approximately one week before their season opens. I’m not sure if it was due to COVID, but you have to purchase a ticket online. There isn’t an option to purchase a ticket at the farm. They also had different time slots to purchase tickets: morning, afternoon, and late afternoon. The farm’s hours are 9am to 6pm.
These are the prices for the tickets: Adult ($12.80), Senior + Military ($10.66), Child ($8.53) and Infants are free.
Since the weather varies so much in April, I recommend buying your tickets a few days before your visit. Also, keep in mind that weekends can sell out. Weekends are the busiest so if you are able to – try getting tickets for one day during the week. My mom and I went on a Monday morning and it wasn’t crowded at all!
