With our Tulip Festival, Spring Planting Festival, and Harvest Festival, the Mansfield, Missouri farm has something for almost every season. Each event is a unique opportunity to come together with like-minded individuals and celebrate the joy and self-sufficiency that gardening and farming bring.
Tulip Festival is a one-of-a-kind event where you can see thousands of tulips in bloom and hear from expert speakers like Jon Jackson, Rory Feek, Jess Sowards, Joseph Lofthouse, Dutch tulip expert Carlos van der Veek, and Mark Cain of Dripping Spring Gardens.
Spring Planting Festival is the perfect kick-off to planting season, where you can meet gardening experts like Sara Patterson, Ray Tyler, Gibron Jones, Rachael West, and Jill Reagan.
Harvest Festival celebrates the abundance of autumn and is a chance to hear from experts like Alan Sparks, Bevin Cohen, Stephen McCombe, and William Woys Weaver.
In addition to our regular festivals, we also host the National Heirloom Exposition in Ventura, CA, a unique opportunity for gardeners and farmers from around the globe to come together and celebrate heirloom gardening. This annual event is one of the largest in the United States, and it features expert speakers, vendors, and a wide variety of heirloom plants and seeds.
The tulip gardens at Baker Creek are a breathtaking experience and a welcome harbinger of spring!
We invite you to come and enjoy them at their peak.
