When you think of Alaska do you conjur up images of majestic mountains where moose roam like cattle, wild salmon jump directly into the mouths of bears and the towns are full of rugged…flower farmers? That’s right, it’s Alaska’s peony farmers who are changing the landscape of agriculture in Alaska and gaining well deserved attention for their beautiful American Grown blooms.
In fact, Sunset Magazine is featuring Alaskan peony farmers in this month’s issue (you can pick it up in news stands now if you haven’t already). Included in this month’s feature is our Alaska Field to Vase Dinner host Beth Van Sandt of Scenic Place Peonies in Homer, Alaska. Beth will be hosting what promises to be one of the most awe-inspiring dinners to date.
The article highlights how Alaska has been able to successfully extend the season of American Grown peonies. Not only are the only state with peonies during the months of July, August and September, Alaska is the only peony producing region in the world at that time. This is wonderful news for brides planning late summer and early fall weddings.

As a Field to Vase Dinner guests you’ll have a chance to see these extraordinary flowers growing in fields overlooking the beautiful Kachemak Bay.
