Four Locust Farm, formerly the Pettus Dairy Farm, in Charlotte County near Keysville, represents a well-preserved example of a 20th-century major Richmond market dairy farm. Operating as a diary farm from 1925 to 1962, today’s 332-acre farm features a circa 1859 two-story farm house and two associated domestic outbuildings, and 20 historic barns and agricultural buildings associated with its nearly 100-year agricultural history. Because of continuing use, the buildings retain an exceptional level of exterior and interior integrity.
