winery hours

Saturday 10am - 6pm | Sunday 10am - 6pm | Anytime by Appointment

East Grove is specializing in meads or honey wine made from organically grown native Iowan and heirloom fruits. Come out to the historic Garretson farm and sample one of the many different wines we have available. We are located about 10 miles south of Mt. Pleasant off of highway 218. Head east on 335th (mile marker 32) for one mile and look for the house on your right.

Sleigh Rides

Last year we started work on a sleigh so we could continue to give tours through the winter. We found a pair of runners that were made by Joel Garretson Sr. in the 80's, and built it from there. It is made entirely from wood off of the farm and can fit six adults, maybe a few more if you are on very good terms with each other. It has been equiped with a six bottle wine rack for those extended rides away from the tasting room. Now all we need is some snow!

Implementing NEW ideas for agriculture sustainability

At East Grove Farms we are working on building a farm that focuses on improving the health of the soil first. Organic growing methods and pesticide free technologies are tested and used on the farm. We hope to work with researchers in the future to discover the most effective methods for producing our crops while maintaining our commitment to sustainable agriculture.
