Tip-toe through the tulips at Hubert Family Farms in New Market

While visiting a pumpkin patch in the fall or a Christmas tree farm in the winter is certainly commonplace, visiting a tulip farm to pick flowers for the spring might not be as common a practice. But Seth and Kaylee Hubert in New Market want visitors to Hubert Family Farms to come on over and pick some tulips, just as you would a pumpkin or tree at farms elsewhere in the state.

Hubert Family Farms has operated for more than 100 years, with generations of Huberts cultivating corn and other crops on their land. But this year — starting March 19 — they opened their property for the public to enjoy with a pick-your-own-tulip experience.

“Kaylee and I wanted to bring something unique to this area that had not been done. Something that brought people happiness and a space to enjoy, relax and escape from the rigors of today’s world. Ultimately, I feel like the average American is more disconnected from the farm than at any time in modern history. We understand not everyone has the opportunity to experience it at their fingertips, which is what really drove us to take on this experiment and open our fields to you all. We really hope you enjoy.”
