Notice Regarding the 2015 Iris Season
at the Lone Oak Iris Ranch

With incredibly heavy hearts, we have
decided not to open for the 2015 Iris season.

The Lone Oak Iris Ranch has been a part of the local Iris community
since 1999 and we intend to be open next year. Many issues
have entered into this very difficult decision.

We'll update this website throughout the year to keep our Iris friends
apprised of plans and schedules for the upcoming 2016 Iris season.

Thank you so much for your support for the past 15 years and hope
you'll resume visits to the Lone Oak Iris Ranch again in 2016.

Jennifer & Perry Smith
Lone Oak Iris Ranch




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.

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!


The Lone Oak Iris Ranch will not be opening for this (2015)
Iris season. We hope to see you for the 2016 season.
