The pioneers came to this area and began farming and planting orchards and vineyards. In 1867 A B Jones had a small vineyard and became the first commercial grower in the county. In 1902 the Battle Creek Grape Juice Company was started in Lawton and is still known for its grape industry. After the prohibition era more wineries came to Van Buren.
