Areas marked in yellow depict areas of working farmland that are preserved at Bundoran Farm

On the June 24, 2008 edition of WINA’s “Charlottesville–Right Now!” Coy Barefoot speaks with David Hamilton of

Bundoran Farm

, a “preservation development” near North Garden. Throughout the course of the show, Hamilton explained to Coy what that means.

”We’ve preserved upwards of 90% of the productive agricultural and forestal land,” Hamilton said. “It’s very important to have a method of developing property which doesn’t destroy that which is important to the community, meaning productive farmland.” The site plan involves building the houses in such a way that allows the farm to continue operations.

Hamilton also weighs in on the topics of land use taxation, how high fuel prices are affecting Albemarle’s farmers, and whether the Albemarle County Fair will be affected by the new development.
