About Panorama Farms

Since 1953, the Murray family have been stewards of open space within Albemarle County. Panorama Farms is home to a number of symbiotic ventures which allow reversible land usage and diverse wildlife habitat.

The Property

In 1953, Jim and Bunny Murray decided to leave the hustle and bustle of New York and to purchase a group of adjoining properties in Albemarle County, Virginia. They were understandably enticed by the varied landscape of rolling pastures and dense forests, interspersed with lakes and streams feeding into the Rivanna River (now a reservoir). Naming their new home “Panorama Farms” after the beautiful panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Murrays raised a family of eight boys on the land who have nurtured roots in the area ever since.
