Welcome to the Lone Oak Iris Ranch online experience.

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.

Our 2014 Iris Season

Thanks for stopping by for our 2014 season
We Look Forward to Seeing You Again in 2015.

●  If you want to buy an iris this season, here's how it works:

●  Drive out the the beautiful Lone Oak Iris Ranch and visit with Jennifer;
During your visit to the ranch, you pick out the irises you'd like to purchase;
Pay for your selections at that time;
Return to pick up your selections later in the Summer, when your selection has gone dormant.
●  Take your rhizome home and plant it according to Jennifer's instructions.

The following year, your yard will be dusted with the lovely colors and fond memories of the Lone Oak Iris Ranch. These gorgeous blossoms will likely encourage another visit to the ranch for more irises to plant in your yard - year after year.


Lone Oak Iris Ranch...the beginning.
Jennifer would like her valued iris friends to know that it all began with her mother, Jane Giffin, who
said to Jennifer I have some irises and I would like you to have them for your new home.
The problem is...you'll never finish. Irises are like potato chips....you can't stop at just one!



●  Visitors, Photographers & Artists - Always Welcome  ●
Come by and say "Hi" and wander through our colorful paradise.
You never know when one of Lone Oak's irises might find its way into your garden and your life.


●  Personalized Group Tours and Presentations 
Lone Oak Iris Ranch welcomes groups, photographers, artists and those interested in our beloved
irises. Call Jennifer to discuss a free tour and presentation on the Iris. Not a "sales pitch"...just a time at the ranch, looking through the fields and meeting your host, Jennifer Smith. Simply give her a call at
559.285.9521 to discuss a special time for your visit to the ranch.

If you're in a flower club, church group, Red Hat Society, 4-H  or FFA group, assisted living center, social club or  students give Jennifer a call to plan
a "day at the ranch".

Jennifer will provide complimentary light refreshments to make your visit more enjoyable. You're also welcome to bring a picnic lunch to add to your experience at Lone Oak Iris Ranch.
