The 5-acre tulip field in Lakeville that attracted hundreds of families since 2020 is about to get a whole lot bigger.

Golden Hour Tulips has moved to Berkley and will offer 20 sprawling acres of gorgeous tulips, sunflowers, and dahlias for picking.

How Golden Hour Tulips Began

Golden Hour Tulips started as a dream for 27-year-old Derek Nedell.  When he was younger, he worked on a cargo ship that traveled around Europe. During his trip, he learned about Hollland’s famous tulip festivals and popular tulip attractions on the West Coast.

“I have zero farming experience,” said Nedell. “I was working with a guy who lives in Washington State who had a tulip farm. I thought to myself, ‘There is nothing like this on the East Coast,’ so I saw an opportunity and ran with it.”

When he was 24, he unveiled Golden Hour Tulips in Lakeville, the first u-pick tulip farm in Massachusetts. In just three short years, he has gone from 5 acres to 20 acres, and he is ecstatic to unveil an even better tulip-picking experience in Berkley.

“It feels so good,” he said. “We put in a lot of work and time, and I just think even with the crazy storm of Covid, when we opened up, the name just got out there and we exploded.”

What To Expect in 2023

“We are excited to finally have a bigger space and start becoming more of an attraction,” said Nedell.

Families and friends will be able to grab a basket and pick as many tulips as they can hold with no time limit.

Alongside the popular “U-Pick” events, Nedell has plans to incorporate food truck events and other family-friendly activities.

Depending on the weather, tulip season will kick off in mid-April. Sunflower and dahlia season will kick off in August.
