Our normal hours are 1-5 pm Saturday and Sunday or by appointment. We are usually working around the farm so call Joel at 319.217.0276 or email eastgrovefarms@gmail.com

Our first festival of the year (Sunshower) was a big success so now we are looking forward to the fall festival, Bumbleberry Jam, on October 15. Eric Pettit Lion, The Nearly Great Horned Owls, Whiskey Friends, and Katie Belle and the Belle Rangers, are booked so far. BBQ will be provided by Cynful Smokers. More details to follow....



Our vineyard and caneyard.

We are one of three meaderies in Iowa, established as an LLC in 2011. We specialize in using our own home grown fruit from our farm, settled by our family in 1837.

We are located at 1878 335th St., Salem, IA 52649. We are one mile east of the Avenue of the Saints (Hwy 27/218) half way between Mt Pleasant and Donnellson. Look for the blue signs on the highway at mile marker 32.

This 19th century country Victorian farm house built by O.A. & Emma Garretson serves as a residence and headquarters for the farm operation

We grow several alternative crops like heirloom green gage plums, white peaches, apples, and persimmons, but we specialize in elderberries and aronia berries.
