We have made some major changes, that began this year! We Opened our Camping Season on March 1st and now extend it throughout the entire year! We have eliminated the hunting lease and are now a Wildlife Preserve!
We are focused on a major effort to vastly increase our Wildflower populations as we have begun planting a minimum of 1 million new seeds, each year for the next 3 years! The colors should be awesome! We are planting strawberry patches, Blueberry bushes, and Fruit Trees, as well as improving existing stock!
Now is the perfect time to come and enjoy exploratory hikes and leisurely walks along our many roads and trails! There are very few tall grassy areas and most of the ground is still visible, from this years controlled burns! The number of plants blossoming will steadily increase throughout this growing season, providing multi colored eye candy!

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had a lovely night at Murchison Farm. Anthony was a great host. The property is beautiful, we loved the wildflowers. Tons of firewood and thoughtful campsites. Kids loved the swings under the oaks. Highly recommend!!
Very open, I could drive wherever I want to set up camp found a pond to fish in and would Have been fun to bring a kayak to reach more spots. Overall the privacy was great
Anthony made us feel so comfortable. We got in late and he quickly sprung to action to lead us to our site. His place is beautiful and we will definitely be back when we’re back in the area. We wish we had more time to stay and explore...
Dark sky site for amatuer astronomy
I found Murchison Farm when doing a search for dark sky areas for telescope viewing, and this spot did not disappoint. Very low light pollution (Bortle Scale 2 based on the dark sky map I use), and the field I was in had a very big sky/low horizon- which is what I was hoping for. I was only able to stay one night and had some clouds form late, but had some great views including the NEOWISE comet.
Great roll your sleeves up getaway
Murchison Farm is a very special place and Anthony makes his land that much better. If you are a true outdoor enthusiast who finds an appreciation for boondock camping you should give his farm a try. Due to incoming weather I only stayed for one night but in that short time I was able to relax with nature and catch a few of Anthony's prized largemouth bass . He goes over and beyond to get his guests situated and I was thankful for that.
