If you’re a Northwest Arkansas native, it’s safe to say you’ve probably stopped at Blue Heaven Blueberry Farm at least once or, you probably bought some blueberries at the Fayetteville Farmers Market. While Lisa and Marlin Wallace have officially retired from the blueberry business, they have ventured to create a new opportunity in NWA — Wildwood Lane Tulip Farm, a place where visitors and pick their own tulips.
Located at 4810 Wildwood Lane in Springdale, Wildwood Lane Tulip Farm is now open daily from 9 a.m. until dark, while tulips last.
After planting a few along the road last summer and seeing how well they grew, Marlon and Lisa decided to plant more – this time in bulk. Last October, the Wallaces planted about 35,000 tulip bulbs along 10 rows, and voilá – the new pick-your-own tulip farm is in full bloom.
“I’ve always enjoyed the tulips, they’re so pretty and I know other people in NWA have had good luck with them,” Marlon says.
With tulips in every color, multiple photo opportunities and lots of tulips for sale, the farm is the perfect family-friendly activity this spring.
“Everyone wants to get out and adventure some; picking tulips is perfect for a family activity,” Marlon says, emphasizing that tulips bloom just in time for Easter.
Pick what you want, with Tulips priced at $1.50 and Daffodils priced at $1 each. Admission is also $1. To keep up with updates for Wildwood Lane Tulip Farm, follow its Facebook.
