Currently being managed by Johnson Family Farms for cultivation of crops and rearing of animals, the Thornhill Farm property is 93.96 acres and located east of Highway 17 North in McClellanville. The farm contains a seven-acre pond and approximately 22 acres of wooded area. The remaining 65 acres are agricultural fields. The Farm was a bargain sale purchase in 2014 by the ECLT Foundation (an East Cooper Land Trust related entity) using funds from the Charleston County Greenbelt Grant Program and the South Carolina Conservation Bank. East Cooper Land Trust holds a conservation easement on the entire farm.
