Tractor Wagon Ride
Guests can enjoy an open-air wagon ride through The Flower Fields. The ride includes an audio commentary of the history of The Flower Fields for our visitors’ enjoyment.
ABOUT THE TRACTOR WAGON RIDE
Wagon Ride is an additional $6 for adults and $3 for children. Tickets can be purchased after you enter The Flower Fields on a mobile device or with a credit card. Cash will not be accepted. Our wagons comfortably seat passengers in an open-air setting, pulled by our brand-new John Deere tractors. Access is safely facilitated by boarding ramps which can accommodate wheelchairs and walkers. The Wagon Ride operates all day during business hours, weather permitting.
Enjoy our seasonal 2-acre U-Pick blueberry patch! Spring weather can be unpredictable in Carlsbad, and our blueberry patch is not always available for picking.
Upon arrival to The Flower Fields, we will have signage sharing with our visitors if picking is available! If no signage is out, the blueberries are not available for picking that day.
ABOUT U-PICK BLUEBERRIES
When open, you can purchase your 1-pint baskets for $5 each at the blueberry stand to enjoy the U-Pick experience. We only accept credit card payment for our U-pick blueberries.
As with all flowers and specialty crops grown on the Carlsbad Ranch, we proudly follow responsible growing and farming practices. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
