In 2006, Charles and Debbie purchased five acres of riverfront on the Kings River with the intent of living there, however, health issues made it difficult to live far away from medical care.

Her grandfather’s brother was the original founder of Freeman’s Lodge in Bass Lake now known as Ducey’s. Her grandmother would serve fried chicken dinners and the fisherman would camp on the porch until the cabins and lodge were built. This is the motivation behind the new venture to recreate a little piece of family history. There is a small vineyard on the property recently named Jacob’s Vineyard. Approximately 1,500 bottles of wine are produced each year through a partnership with a local winery. Recently, they partnered with the UC Organic Agriculture Institute, Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center Department Entomology UC Riverside and Jacob’s Vineyard has now become a test site for organic fertilizers and pest control.
