Newmarket Plantation was purchased by the Caruthers family in 1998, however, the farm’s heritage goes back to the 1700’s when the property was obtained with a land grant by Colonel John Baylor. The main plantation house was built in the 1840’s and still boasts all the historic charm today. Robert “Robby” and Ada Caruthers acquired the 450-acre plantation located in Milford, Virginia from Gary Gray, who is Robby’s cousin, and Bill Webb. They initially planned to develop the property into a golf course. Today, the farm produces corn, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers, squash, cabbage, kale, and more.
