Hello from North Pole, Alaska! We are a family owned farm that specializes in the raising of gorgeous peonies. We would love to dress-up your next event or help you let those you love know how much they mean to you!
Peonies in Alaska?? Yes!! Our peonies bloom from the end of June through the end of July so we can get fresh peonies to you through August. During the summer months we have 24 hours of daylight and that gives our blooms a rich color and gigantic size.
Our post-harvest processing exceeds industry standards. We have a state of the art 15' X 30' chiller that maintains a temperature of 33-34 degrees at 98% - 100% humidity.
Our farm is located eight miles south of North Pole, Alaska. Yes, we are very close to Santa Claus!! We have owned our farm since 2000 and began peony production in 2014. We are the sole owners of the farm and chose to get into the peony business because we are getting close to retirement and love farming and agriculture. We were raised in Montana and Tom spent ten years teaching vocational agriculture. Joni is a career and technical education coordinator for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District. Tom began his transition to full time farmer a couple years ago after a career as a high school teacher and the owner of Riverrun Kennel where he specialized in training retrievers. Critters have always been an important part of our lives and we share our lives with a labrador, Grace, a handsome mule named Amos, and the cutest mini rex bunny, Caz.
Alaska is a unique and amazing place to live. We have 24 hours of daylight in the summer and temperatures in the 80's and in the winter only 2-3 hours of daylight and temperatures can plummet to 45-50 below zero and mountains of snow that cover our hibernating peonies. Fall and winter also bring the most awe inspiring light show, the Northern Lights. We have an abundance of wildlife that we share the farm with; moose, Sandhill cranes, ducks, geese, fox, wolves, coyotes, and the occasional bear.
We would love to have you visit!!
