  Veldheer Tulips Blooming in May
by Stephen-KarenConn
 
 

In 1945 Vern Veldheer planted 400 tulip bulbs in and 8x10 flower bed, just as a hobby. Today the Veldheer enterprise has grown into an 80 acre farm with an average of four million builbs planted each year. They offer more than 1,000 varieties of flowering bulbs which are distributed to all 50 states. The best time to visit is in May, when the tulips are a glorious riot of color. Later in the growing season other varieties of perennials may be seen blooming.

Open to visitors year round, Veldheer's also includes a wooden shoe factory, and the only Delftware factory in North America, making the famous blue and white dutch pottery from scratch. Free tours are offered for both wooden shoe and Delftware factories year round.
