Dutch Girl Peonies is situated on a sunny mountain top in the picturesque Kootenays of southern British Columbia, Canada. Our farm is located between Nelson and Castlegar, BC off of Highway 3A. We are a long time family farm of nearly 300 acres.

As well as growing and selling 80+ varieties of peonies we have a market garden and Black Angus beef cows. We offer fresh cut flowers for weddings and retail and wholesale sales of plants, root divisions, and blooms.

We are members of Kootenay Local Agricultural Society (KLAS) and are proud to be certified through their Kootenay Mountain Grown local certification program. Our peonies roots and blooms are chemical and spray free as well as all our farm produce and grass fed only beef. We are passionate about growing healthy local flowers and food. We are always looking for improved farming methods such using cover crops and rotational grazing to maintain healthy soil and plants.

We sincerely hope that the pleasure and beauty we enjoy from growing and nurturing our peony plants is passed on to you – our customers.
