Arthur Estes, the founder of Big Red Oak Plantation, is a sixth generation family member to live and work on the land.
The property started with a mere few hundred acres; the family was able to build the plantation to 2,500 acres over the last seven generations.
The land was originally used to grow, buy and market cotton. When the cotton market declined in the late 1970’s, Arthur combined his lifelong passion for quail hunting and bird dogs and founded Big Red Oak Plantation in 1976. He had established the hunting preserve in 1974 to restore the quail population.
Now, where cotton, peaches, corn, and soybeans were grown, the 2,500 acres farm is planted in switch grass, love grass, small grains, clover, partridge pea, and bi-color lespedeza strictly for wildlife management.
Arthur’s family is determined to continue the legacy of preservation and conservation of Big Red Oak Plantation for future generations.
