The Iverson family began growing tulips in 1974. The first tulips belonged to Dr. Holman who would ship part of the bulbs to Indiana every year for forcing. When he retired in the late 1970’s we bought a few acres of bulbs from him.Our Woodburn online trip builder makes visiting Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm and other Woodburn attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
By the early 1980’s we had over 15 acres and needed to broaden the market base. Seeing this as an opportunity, in 1983 we started the Wooden Shoe Bulb Company which had a name change to Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in 2001.
In the first few years we printed up black and white order sheets and sales were slow. Then, in 1985, we opened our fields for Easter weekend. The rest you may say is history.
Now we open our fields for an entire month, end of March the first week of May. We have greatly expanded our operation to include taking bulb orders, cut flowers, potted tulips, a gift shop, and all sorts of food and activities on weekends for all members of the family.

Loved this place! Went for the tulip festival and it was great. Lots of flowers with photo OP places, they were flying kites, they had a kids area and vendors and a coffee truck. It was a great day. I didnt try their wine, but now I have an excuse to go back!
There’s a surreal amount of tulips here during the Tulip Festival! We waited until the third or fourth week to go and most of the tulips, by far, were in full bloom. It was crowded on a Sunday after church, as expected. It took a while for us to get into the parking lot (which is just on tall grass for a good part of it). Allot a good amount of time here! We didn’t buy anything, but just spent an hour or two walking around. I’d recommend wearing some rain boots, as it can be muddy and wet in certain places. It seems there’s a gorgeous hazelnut orchard at the end, which is nice to admire but you’re not supposed to go into it. Please be respectful and listen to the signs there! Don’t pick the tulips or step over the rows. It was gorgeous! I’d recommend it. Lots of photo ops and a cool hot air balloon as well. Who needs to go to Holland when you’ve got this here in Oregon?
