ABOUT

"In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks."
– John Muir

Hello and a warm welcome from the heart of Alaska! I’m Sapphire, the proud new owner and passionate soul of Alaska Blooms Peony Farm. My journey to this beautiful corner of the world is woven with threads of adventure, resilience, and a deep-seated love for the rugged beauty that defines Alaska.

Born in Molalla, Oregon, and raised amidst constant change and moving in my younger years, I found my true calling in the wild expanses of Alaska, which I have called home since 2003. This land, with its untamed wilderness and breathtaking landscapes, whispered to my spirit, echoing a sense of belonging that I had longed for all my life.

Life in Alaska, while challenging at times has been a beautiful, whirlwind adventure, especially after having three amazing boys. Motherhood and the Alaskan way of life taught me the importance of resilience, hard work, and the unbreakable bond of family. Despite the long hours and the distance from conventional lifestyles, my heart yearned for a deeper connection—to the land, to my community, and to the passions that ignited my soul.

My interest for farming and flowers grew as I dreamt of planting true, lasting roots in this land that had given me so much. The dream began to blossom into reality when I discovered Alaska Blooms Peony Farm—a place that felt like destiny, a sanctuary where I could weave together my love for nature, community, and family.

Every bloom and every new farmers market and social gathering is a moment of connection for us. Sharing AK Bloom peonies, whether with a local florist, an Alaskan bride, or a neighbor, feels like I am extending a piece of who I am. The founding growers of Alaska Blooms made sure our Peonies will stand out—that they embody the vast, wild essence of our home, mirroring the boldness, resilience, and breathtaking beauty of Alaska itself.

 

Now, as the new steward of this enchanting farm, I am embarking on a journey of growth and discovery. Alaska Blooms is more than a farm; it’s the beginning of a dream where community, nature, and the joy of blooming can merge. This journey isn't just mine—it’s one I share with every bloom nurtured and every bouquet crafted, and each beautiful owner before me, embodying the wild Alaskan spirit.

I invite you to join me and the Alaska Blooms family as we step into this exciting chapter. Here, —we're a community bound by love for nature's beauty and the shared moments that flowers bring into our lives.

Thank you for visiting and for being a part of our ongoing story. Here’s to a future filled with growth, beauty, and the kind of joy that only comes from shared connections and blooming dreams.

Warmest regards,

Sapphire G.
Owner, Alaska Blooms Peony Farm
