We are a third generation fruit, nut and berry farm specializing
in Muscadines. We are very proud of our heritage with the Muscadine
Grape. It dates back to 1934 when our grandfather, Grady Ison,
planted the first muscadine vine on our farm. Since that time
the Ison family has enjoyed a long relationship with the muscadine.
In the late
1960’s, Our father, Bill Ison along with Dr. B.O. Fry began
breeding muscadines in order to improve size, taste and production.
the fruits of their labor we now have 22 patented varieties of
muscadines! These varieties are considered the best for commercial
vineyards, u-pick operations, and the backyard hobbyist.
began hosting school field trips in the Fall of 1997. It was our
goal to offer a fun educational field trip that was unrushed and
not overbooked. As you begin the hayride if you will look just
beyond the lake you will see 40 acres of rolling muscadine vineyards.
We harvest the fruit from late August until mid October and it
is available for purchase at our roadside stand or in area stores.
welcome you to our farm! Thank you for coming!
