In the Green Mountains of
Vermont, what was once the old Frost farm , became
Frost Hill Farm Peony Nursery in 2000.  Last year was our last selling potted plants and bare root
divisions and we now sell just cut peonies for weddings and other occassions. We have been working this rocky piece of
hillside for over 35 years and for more than 25 of     those years have been liking the way peonies take to this ground. During the  early years we have tried  strawberries, raspberries,      a market garden, dried          flowers and cut flowers.   Never full time, but just           enough to know that          working with a piece of     land is a most satisfying. venture.

300 different varieties of peonies are grown here.  From the classical full doubles that your Grandmother kept to the newest hybrid varieties. Singles doubles & Japanese are all well represented and we are always looking and adding the more unusual forms and colors that today's hybridizers (incl. ourselves) are developing.

 We are located 1.5 miles off of route 103  between Ludlow and Rutland, in Belmont    Vermont.  At an elevation of almost 2000'     our bloom season is among the latest in      the East and typically goes into the 1st       week of July.

​      Call for volunteers!!
As you may know, we have gotten out of the plant business and have been increasing our cut peony flower capabilities. We hope to keep the display field for all peony lovers to visit in the future.But we need your help! Yup, we've gotten older and the workload from our real jobs means we are asking for volunteers to help with the weeding in exchange for cut peonies. Nice  working conditions! If you would like to volunteer contact Nancy at nmc@vermontel.net.

We have an ongoing regime of cover cropping, tillage and plant based products that seem to work well for us in keeping  things in balance here. Although we are not "certified" organic we are strong believers in the practice

    ​Potted Plants for 2016
  ​Last year, Dan dug out a row of peonies to condense our display field and make it  a bit more manageable to     weed and till. So yes, we  have only about 30 potted       plants available for sale         June 17th until sold out.      Please, no early birds or reserves. They will be $20 a   pot, so please bring exact    change or a check in case          we aren't around.
