Chesterfield County Farms
Formed in 1749, and the fourth most populated county in Virginia, Chesterfield County contains 423 square miles of land and 14 square miles of water. The county is really defined by the water that surrounds it and the county includes two types of regions, the Piedmont and Tidewater. The rivers assist in leveling out the soil’s pH balancing leading to productive acreage.
Why the River?
The soil along the Appomattox and James River is Virginia’s finest – Pamunkey. This soil is well drained and has a loamy subsoil. This is the type that makes crops for both livestock and humans grow well. Away from the river in the Piedmont region, the soil is more Cecil-Applying, which are deeper and well drained and have a dominantly clayey subsoil. This is mostly used for woodland and general farming. While these are a generalization, there is good soil in the area to grow on and a good amount of it!
