EXETER, R.I. (WPRI) ─ Rhode Islanders and tourists alike can once again tip-toe through the tulips at Wicked Tulips Flower Farm.
The tulip farm moved from Johnston to Exeter prior to the pandemic, but the state’s coronavirus restrictions made it impossible for visitors to safely frolic through the flowers.
After offering a virtual experience and curbside pickup throughout the first season in their new location, the tulip farm will be hosting its official grand opening on Friday.
Wicked Tulips is known for its rows upon rows of colorful tulips, which are available for customers to pick and enjoy.
There are over half a million tulips on this farm in Exeter and the plan is for about 250,000 tulips in the soon-to-be second location in Preston, Conn.
Anyone who’s interested in attending one of the tulip farm’s popular “U-Pick” events must purchase tickets in advance online.
Keep in mind, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, there are a few guidelines you must follow when arriving at the farm.
Guests should remain 6 to 10 feet apart when browsing the farm and only two parties should be in any single row at any given time. Masks are to be worn at all times with the exception for pictures as long as there is a safe distance away from others.
It’s also best to bring your own bucket to gather the tulips, however if you forget to bring your own there will be extras upon check in.
For those that aren’t yet comfortable venturing out, the tulip farm is now offering its virtual experience on YouTube for free.
The tulip farm is planning a grand opening at it’s second location in Preston, Conn. in May.
