A Bit About Us
After several years developing her organic vegetable farm, Carey Restino, along with partner Craig Matthews and children Liam and Théa, first set down peony roots in 2013.
Since then, they have been carefully tending their flower fields with the help of many friends and visitors.
Carey first arrived in Homer, Alaska, in 1993 and worked as a journalist and writer for 15 years before starting her vegetable farm, Homer Hilltop Farm, as a way to spend more time with her two young children.
Growing up on a subsistence farm in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, vegetable farming was a natural way for Carey to spend more time outside in the beautiful summer months in Alaska.
It was Craig, however, who suggested Carey consider peony farming, a trend that was sweeping the agricultural scene in Homer and other regions of Alaska at the time. Applying the knowledge of farming vegetables to peonies, the pair has found peony-growing fascinating and rewarding.
They first planted a field of 1,000 peony plants, followed by another 1,500 two years later on new land Carey purchased behind the original farm.
As for Liam and Théa, they have grown up watching the peony plants grow, and are now an important part of our operation, helping to harvest, sort and sell the beautiful blooms at farmers markets throughout the state.
Homer Hilltop Peonies and Homer Hilltop Farm also welcomes dozens of people to the farm each year to learn about small-scale farming. The family loves sharing their farm and the amazing state of Alaska with so many volunteers and apprentices, many of whom have become part of our extended family.
