Hello! We are Dan and Denise Carey. We are retired teachers, who after 30 years in the classroom, decided to start a second career as peony farmers. We cleared 2 acres of forestland in 2017 and planted our peonies in 2018. As you can see from the pictures below, they are doing very well. Our farm, Funny River Peonies, in located in the tiny community of Funny River, outside of Soldotna, Alaska. Building this farm from the ground up has been one of the hardest, yet most rewarding projects we have ever undertaken. If you are interested in seeing the steps we went through to turn a forest into a farm, check out our Funny River Peonies Facebook page, where we have chronicled our journey.
Our plants receive an average of 19 hours of daylight per day during the summer. This makes our peonies grow bigger and brighter than peonies in many other locations. Our farm boasts fourteen varieties of peonies in a wide range of colors. If you are looking for peonies in July or August, please check out our website to see our full selection of peonies.
