Not Your Ordinary Retail Store
Located in a restored 1900s-era farmhouse, French Girl Farm is a complete shopping experience that showcases gracious living at its best. The charming and eclectic boutique is filled with treasures that embody the grace, polish and welcoming spirit of true southern hospitality.
Stepping through the screen door into French Girl Farm, you’ll discover an ever-changing collection of hand-picked antiques, home decor elements and seasonal decorative accessories, as well as all-natural bath and body products.
At French Girl Farm, owner Dawne Jones has created a inspirational space that invites her customers to dream of the possibilities for their own spaces at home and then provides the stylish pieces to make those dreams come true. Everything is so exquisitely displayed customers feel like they are wandering through the home of their most stylish friend rather than a retail shop.
And that is exactly the atmosphere Jones envisioned when she decided to open her own retail space.
“I thought, ‘I’m going to make it like you’re coming to my house.’ I wanted to have an intimate, cozy space with fresh flowers and candles burning, where you can have something to eat and drink,” Jones said. “That’s where everything came from. It all just grew organically. French Girl Farm is not just a store or a tea room, it’s so much more. It’s about welcoming people into my home, but you can take the experience home with you.”
French Girl Farm is not your ordinary retail store; it is so much more. In addition to the beautiful home decor and gift items, French Girl Farm offers interior decorating services, event coordinating and confections. Coming soon will be a tea room serving homemade specialties prepared in the on-site commercial kitchen.
A recent transplant to northeast Oklahoma from Memphis, Jones has a background in interior design and event planning. After visiting her son who lives in the Grand Lake area, she decided to move here to get away from the city and live in a smaller town.
The restored 1900s farmhouse itself is what inspired Jones to open the retail shop.
“I saw the building, liked it and then when it came available, I purchased it,” said Jones. “It’s an old restored farmhouse that is precious. It looks like a little farm. There’s a little hen house in the back and Ginnies Hair Styling salon is also part of the property.”
For more than three years, Jones has been making and selling a line of all-natural bath and body products online under the name French Girl Farm. The farmhouse on Main Street in Grove, which opened in October 2017, is her first retail property and the products are featured at the store.
As for the unique name of her product line and shop, Jones says it pays homage to her French ancestry.

The selection of items available range from antiques to new items that will be tomorrow’s heirlooms. The selection includes furniture pieces, lamps, pillows, serveware, napkins, candles, potpourri, specialty items such as ironing water, reed fragrance diffusers and organic laundry soap.
French Girl Farm also offers original oil paintings by local artist Annetta Gregory, whose artwork represents her mission “to paint beautiful inspiring paintings that bring joy and a sense of tranquility when viewed.”
A woman of many talents, French Girl Farm owner Dawne Jones is also a talented baker. Luckily for patrons of her Grove shop, Jones enjoys sharing her beautiful and tasty creations with others.
The confections counter at French Girl Farm is always filled with a scrumptious display of tasty treats, including specialty candies, chocolates and candied pecans, as well as a selection of packaged teas, coffees and special syrups.
While Jones tries to offer a small selection of baked goods, the store will soon include a bakery section which will feature an array of delicious desserts. Baked offerings in the past have included cinnamon rolls, lemon bars, cheese danish, pumpkin streusel, chocolate chunk cookies and apple strudel.
Once the tea room opens, French Girl Farm customers will be able to sit and have dessert and tea while shopping.
The iced cookies from French Girl Farm are both beautiful and tasty. These custom-decorated sugar cookies must be ordered two weeks in advance, but are sure to be the talk of your next event or party.
All of the confections, baked goods and decorated cookies are handmade in the licensed commercial kitchen at French Girl Farm, using the freshest and finest ingredients.
