The Alaska Peony Cooperative was established in the spring of 2015 as a way to bring together farmers and represent them as a unified voice in the specialty cut flower market. Our principles of responsibility, stewardship, and cooperation allow us to achieve more collectively than as individual farms. It is our pleasure to present premium Alaskan-Grown Peonies on behalf of our farmers, and we take great pride in helping them succeed at growing the very best just for you.
Growing peonies in Alaska is a bit different than the rest of the world. Our cold winter weather and extensive summer sun make for the most exquisite color and huge blooms by intensifying and bringing out the pigments in each petal. We start harvesting our first stems after the rest of the world has finished their harvest, which makes our stems fresher when they arrive at your door from July through September.
Since our members are small family farms, each peony stem is hand harvested and immediately chilled before being graded and carefully packaged for shipping. We ship overnight to your door, and make available a variety of quantities per box in order to meet your needs. Ordering directly from a farmers cooperative cuts out the middleman, which means your flowers go through fewer hands and arrive in peak condition, within days of being cut out of our fields.
We market premium Alaska-Grown Peonies and empower farmers through education and resource sharing
