List of plantations in Jamaica

This is a list of plantations and pens in Jamaica by county and parish including historic parishes that have since been merged with modern ones. Plantations produced crops, such as sugar cane and coffee, whilst livestock pens produced animals for labour on plantations and for consumption. Both industries used the forced labour of enslaved peoples.[2]
