About Oak Hill
Of the founders’ three children, Lucy Taylor Maclin acquired about 1,000 acres of the family landholdings in 1847. Lucy and her husband Dr. James B. Maclin transformed the farm into one of the region’s largest antebellum plantations, one that totaled 3,500 acres. The farm is still owned and operated by the Maclin family, now in the seventh generation at Oak Hill.
We focus on sustainable growing and the maintenance of biodiversity--through heritage breeds of livestock, heirloom vegetable varieties, and permaculture practices.
We are also a Tennessee Century Farm; see out page at the Tennessee Century Farm web site!
