The farm family ‘s history actually precedes the tulips for which they are so famous. Ross and Dorothy Iverson married in 1950 and purchased a farm the same year. In 1974, the family began growing tulips.
It was not until 1985 that the family opened their tulip fields to public perusal. In 2001, the farm took on the name of Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm.
Wooden Shoe Farm introduced a new event this year: the festival’s first photo contest. Visitors can submit photos of friends, family, or even beloved pets amidst the tulip fields to compete for cash prizes.
The tulip fields will remain open through May 3.
