Monticello is a Virginia plantation that was owned by Thomas Jefferson and is located in Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S. When he inherited Monticello's land from his father at age 26, he began construction on the farm.


Jefferson mainly grew tobacco and other general mixed crops while farming in Monticello. Due to changes in popular crops and market, he gradually grew into wheat as well. Jefferson mainly worked slaves on his farm, though later as a [[Democratic-Republican Party]|Democratic-Republican]] supported the freeing of slaves.
