Due to the unseasonably hot
weather, we will be closing our
2014 season on Friday, May 2nd at 4:00 PM
Welcome to the
Lone Oak Iris Ranch
The ranch is located in
the rich San Joaquin river bottom land -
in the heart of Central Valley of California - just
a short drive from Fresno. We are located close to Yosemite National Park and the
California Giant Redwoods, which can make a visit to our Iris
Ranch a multi-faceted experience those that aren't local.
Jennifer Smith is the owner and cordial host of the Lone Oak
Iris Ranch. Her gorgeous
array of colorful irises now grow where her grandfather,
Everett Rank Sr., once farmed. Her iris farm and immaculate
grounds, has been in the family for seven generations and has
been an iris ranch for over twelve years. If you're looking for an
afternoon outing or a specific color iris, Jennifer will welcome
you and guide you in her friendly, hospitable style.
