Joe and Tasha
The family used a motorized bulb planter from Holland and GPS to plant 300,000 tulip bulbs in various shapes, including a sunburst and color blocks, on 5 acres for a U-pick area.
The farm will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. through mid-May. Visitors will also find a barn gift shop with fudge, popcorn, and other snack delicacies, as well as a range of spring gift items, in addition to the tulips. Food trucks, beer, wine, and lakefront picnic tables are available, with live music performed on the weekends.
“We encourage people to take photos,” said George Richardson, who runs the farm with his wife Wendy, brother Robert, and sister-in-law Carol. Ryan, their son, is the sixth generation of the family to work the land.
The operation has developed from a tiny farm homesteaded in 1836 to two farmsteads and 544 acres of corn and soybeans, as well as specialty crops.
He added that “the buzz (about the tulip festival) has been pretty fantastic on social media, and there have been a lot of shares.”
For kids of age four and up, admission tickets can be purchased online or at the farm. Monday through Friday, tickets are $12, and Saturday and Sunday, they are $15. Sunflowers, a new bloom and a festival first, will be shown on the farm in late August. Visitors will be able to walk through 8 to 10 acres of sunflowers with walking routes. The gift shop will be open for business.
Visitors come to “the world’s largest corn maze” and a pumpkin farm in the fall, according to the Richardsons.
The 28-acre maze opens the weekend following Labor Day and runs until the first weekend in November. There are thousands of pumpkins, squash, and gourds to choose from. Visitors can wander into the fields and choose their own pumpkins or purchase one that has already been plucked.
For tree hunters, the heated barn gift shop is open with hot beverages, food treats, wreaths, garland, decorations, bows, and a variety of holiday gifts.

Testimonials From Our Satisfied Customers
We started off not knowing what we wanted, but knew we needed a new kitchen and flooring for most of our first floor, which was overwhelming to us. We worked with Liz to help us design what we wanted. She was fabulous and patient with us. Timelines were met and the crew who worked with us ended up feeling like part of the family. When faced with some pretty big “snags,” which were of no fault of Waldron Construction, Joe was professional, pushed to make things right, and kept his word; The team went above and beyond and did excellent work.
Such a great team of professionals. We had our kitchen remodeled and Waldron Construction was very helpful and thorough. A little future advice for anyone considering a major remodel is to expect delays and the need to make changes due to supply availability or unforeseen issues. Joe Waldron treats you with great respect and is very driven to make sure you are very satisfied and happy with your remodel. Some may feel the expense is too high…but you do get what you pay for. Thank you for a very beautiful kitchen, Nancy and Gary
We just completed our dream kitchen remodel with Waldron Construction. We are extremely pleased with the results. Angie helped us through the design and was always a text/phone call away. The trades were excellent and were great to work with. Of course there were hiccups in the process but nothing that couldn’t be worked out. Having the schedule in front of us daily through builder trend was great too. Joe was very responsive whenever we had questions or concerns. We would recommend Waldron for your next home improvement project..
