We are Jim & Carol Adelman and we live in the farm community of Brooks, just north of Salem, Oregon. We raised our 5 children on this farm growing crops such as peppermint, peaches, hazelnuts, and grass for seed, with our main crop for 25 years being apples. We also custom harvested tree fruits, sweet cherries, pie cherries, prunes, and hazelnuts for other farmers.
We have evolved over the years and in 1993 planted our first peonies as a crop. Our goal was to give a customer experience not previously available for peony-lovers: provide big blocks of color with grass walkways so guests could really experience the growing habits and lovely flowers of the peony. Our nursery is open to the public, during bloom time every spring for visitors. We ship bare root peonies to customers around the world in the Fall.
