A farm in the Triad, near Winston Salem and Greensboro, plants 100,000 tulip bulbs every year, as well as other spring flowers, in anticipation of visitors from all over North Carolina.
Dewberry Farm is at 2585 Dewberry Farm Lane, Kernersville. It’s around an hour and a half drive from the center of Charlotte, and less for those along the I-85 corridor to the north of Charlotte. It’s well worth the drive if you love flowers — especially tulips.
Springtime on the Farm starts March 17th, 2023. We originally had the opening date in our headline as March 13th. Apologies for the error.
Visitors can come to see all the tulips, and cut their own. Tulip season is expect to last until around April 8th, but the exact dates depend on the weather.
The cost to visit will be $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 3-15. Free admission for children 2 and under. The cost for tulips is $1.25 a stem. Bring your own clippers or scissors, baskets and buckets.
Hours will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week, and your ticket will be for a two-hour block.
Take all the pictures you want of your family and the flowers with your own camera! Professional photography (where you charge a client) must be scheduled, and costs $25 an hour, in addition to regular admission prices for your clients.
You can purchase tickets on their website when tickets go on sale.
Tickets must be purchased in advance.
In addition to their Springtime on the Farm event, they’ll be hosting a Mother’s Day Tea, with snapdragons, tulip peonies, a small amount of peonies, roses, anemones, ranunculus and other spring bulbs.
And in the summer summer they invite visitors to the farm once more to cut sunflowers, zinnias and dahlias.
You will be impressed by the tulip fields at Dewberry Farm, and it will be worth the drive, but there are also other cut-your-own flower opportunities closer to Charlotte, including at McLawland Farms (in Charlotte), and Howard Family Farm in Harmony (Iredell County.)
