Research into peonies as a specialty cut flower in Alaska began in 2001 and interest quickly spread throughout the State. Several adventurous individuals and families ventured out to explore becoming commercial flower farmers in our unique climate. Now there are more than 40 commercial peony farms spread out across our great state, working together to bring you exquisite flowers. Alaska boasts a reputation for rugged wilderness and unsurpassed beauty with a people as tough as our climate. Our farmers are no exception, and are true adventurers in a blooming industry with limitless potential.
The Alaska Peony Cooperative was established in the spring of 2015 to allow many farms to achieve more collectively than as individual farms. It is our pleasure to present premium Alaskan-Grown Peonies on behalf of our farmers, we take great pride in helping them succeed at growing the very best just for you.
When you purchase peonies through Alaska Peony Cooperative you have a direct impact on the success of Alaska family farms located throughout the state. Our farmers work hard to ensure the quality of every peony you purchase, and extend their deepest appreciation and thanks for your support.

Our family farm is situated on the banks of the Susitna River with 180 degree views of the Alaska Range and Mount Susitna, and provides a five acre playground for our two young daughters. Our farm is just as much about sustainably growing stunning peonies as it is about creating a lifestyle we are proud to raise our girls in. We do everything by hand with hard work, determination and making it a fun endeavor for the whole family.

We are long time Alaskans that work, play and enjoy living on the Kenai Peninsula. Located in Homer, Alaska we grow 14 different cultivars of peonies for the cut flower market.
Our farm holds a Certified Naturally Grown certification. Because we value our family, community and the wild creatures that we share our farm with we choose to grow naturally without the use of harsh chemicals and with the utmost care and love. When you see, touch and smell our flowers you will only experience the true beauty and fragrance of the peony. We are excited to be able to offer our peonies direct from the farm to you!

Big Lake, Alaska
Dave and Sue Lindquist
Nestled on Serenity Lake our farm is a peaceful retreat with peonies, an apple orchard and large vegetable garden. A retirement project that feeds the soul! We are happy to grow some of the most stunning varieties of peonies as cut flowers with the help of our four children and 17 grandchildren. Our 40 acre property has been in the family for almost 20 years with much of the work being done by hand over long weekends. It truly is our little slice of Alaskan paradise.
