AVOID!!! If there is a cloud in the sky, the "hail cannon" will be booming!! You risk deafness from it or death by fire from the quantity of of highly flammable, explosive acetylene stored there to operate it.

I would recommend avoiding this place in the late winter or early spring if there are any clouds in the ski or the slightest chance of rain. They use what is called a hail cannon to try and stop hail from damaging their flowers. The pseudoscience of the cannon is that by sending a blast skyward every 4 seconds it will prevent hail formation. It can cause deafness if you are near the fields. More about the cannon: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hail_cannon
They were sold the equivalent of snake oil and they continue to use it in the hopes that it does work.

What a beautiful place. They have such an amazing display of tulips. The Spring Festival is a fun one for the kids to go to. Be prepared to take pictures!

This is a beautiful tulip farm often overlooked because of the big tulip farm in Oregon.
The visitors building is charming. They have unique gift ideas. You are able to walk the fields and come back and order or purchase the bulbs of your choice.
They provided me with a great idea for planting my bulbs in soil that isn't the greatest and is sometimes plagued by gophers and moles.
I recommend a visit in spring. If you love tulips, it's worth the drive. Plenty of parking.
