Historical Note

White Flint Farm, formerly White Flint Plantation, is located in present-day Keeling, Virginia, part of Pittsylvania County. Over its history, the farm has chiefly grown tobacco, though its current products also include eggs and produce. The farm has been part of the same family for at least six generations, dating back to at least Abraham Cooper White (1853-1920) and his wife Alice Sparrow White (1864-1922).
