Bundoran Farm is a residential community located in the Albemarle County, Virginia, founded on the principles of sustainability and preserving the rural, agricultural character and scenic value of the land through environmentally sensitive land use and stewardship of farm lands, forest, and other natural resources.
We sit on a working farm of 2,300 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Albemarle County, 20 minutes south of Charlottesville, Virginia. Of those 2,300 acres, 2,000 are protected in perpetuity by conservation easements.
The farm was privately owned before 2007. Now, our community of owners actively manages all aspects of the farm through the Bundoran Farm Community Association (BFCA). The day-to-day operations are carried out in an environmentally sensitive manner by a full-time farm manager who reports to the BFCA. The land is leased out for cattle grazing, haying and apple orchards. The forests are periodically timbered according to sustainable practices. There are 2 small lakes, 15 miles of walking trails and streams that are fenced to protect the water quality.
Homes are carefully located on designated homesites to fit into the landscape. There will be about 90 once fully built out (some owners have purchased more than one lot). Each is designed and built by the owner to meet "green building" standards and approval by the Design Committee.
