Located on the historic Kilcher Homestead, Charlotte and Otto Kilcher grow peonies along with their other farm and ranching operations. Otto was born and raised a homesteader and Charlotte joined him in the adventure 28 years ago in 1990.
The peony field was established in 2010. Having a modest 450 plants, Charlotte is able to manage the day-to-day work on her own, keeping it simple and hands-on. Otto’s contributions include ingenuity and precision, establishing the flower beds, having all the right equipment needed, along with being the best cheerleader and go-to fix-it guy for all farm problems. Yay team! Who wouldn’t love being surrounded by heavenly peonies all summer?

Charlotte's peonies were recently featured in Discovery Channel's Alaska: The Last Frontier (S10, E7) where Charlotte releases her peonies into Kachemak Bay as a tribute to the lives lost to COVID-19. Follow us on Tik Tok and check out clips of the episode:
