Jubilee Farm, located just southeast of historic Edenton in Chowan County is protected forever by a conservation agreement held by the Coastal Land Trust. In late 2001, Mr. and Mrs. Simon B. Rich generously donated a conservation agreement over scenic Jubilee Farm, historically known as Poplar Neck Farm. The property, which remains in private ownership and is not open to the public, is best known for its circa 1853 restored antebellum plantation home known as Poplar Neck Plantation.
Jubilee Farm features a mixture of agricultural land, managed timberlands, old-growth hardwood stand and pasture. A portion of the property is now dedicated to organic cattle husbandry. Mr. and Mrs. Rich placed the property under a conservation agreement to preserve its scenic and historic values and encourage neighboring landowners to do the same.
