The vision for the 1,800-acre Little
Mountain Ranch was to create a multi-
functional retreat for the owner; a place
of respite and recreation designed to meet
the needs of a growing family today and
into the future. McKee Carson cultivated
this vision in a master plan that employs
conservation easements, enhances
ecologically sensitive areas, and introduces
new rural recreational pursuits which can be
enjoyed by family, friends and visitors alike.
The master planning process began
with a comprehensive analysis of the
sites geographic, cultural, and historical
context. Resource maps and narratives
of Highland County were chronicled
and site analyses conducted on local
ecology, plant communities, terrain and
solar aspect. Evaluation of the sites
opportunities and constraints associated
with the programmatic goals led to
further exploration and revelation of
the sites unique character. A thorough
understanding of the natural and cultural
inuences, site context, existing conditions
and programmatic goals all contributed
to the unique landscape language that was
developed for this master plan.
In order to revive the ranchs trout
habitat, Field Sport Concepts afliate
Trout Headwaters, Inc. participated in the
evaluation of riparian and river restoration
efforts for a one mile stretch of river within
the property boundary.

Located on a gently sloping site with an
expansive view of the lake, Lake Erie
Colleges Equestrian Center is home to
their well-known Equine Studies Program.
Having outgrown their current facilities,
LEC planned to renovate their existing
indoor arena and build a new arena, barns,
classrooms, show areas, service buildings
and paddocks, effectively doubling their
capacity. To allow for the most paddock
space possible, the new arena, barns, show
and educational spaces were attached to the
existing arena and connected to each other.
This would also protect people and horses
from brisk breezes off Lake Erie, especially
during the cold winter months. To scale
down the massing of the large proposed
buildings, the barns and support spaces
were broken down into smaller units that
gave the impression of buildings on a more
human scale, while still being functionally
connected.

Field Sport Concepts, Ltd. and its parent
company, McKee Carson, teamed with
Equestrian Services to plan and design
The Oaks, a 1,222-acre site in the Lake
City area of Columbia County, Florida.
Our goal was to maintain the agrarian
character and quality of place of the
surrounding landscape and set a precedent
for future development in the region.
Preserving the vernacular landscape we
have expanded upon critical features and
systems such as wetlands, ponds, vegetation
and hydrological elements. Residential
components are clustered, minimizing
infrastructure and protecting open space.
Additional amenities include a twenty-four
stall barn, competition-quality riding arenas,
a cross country course, a covered round
pen, more than fteen miles of looped
riding trails and multiple park like open
spaces.
Afliated with Olympic champions Karen

The terrain and landscape typology of
the Alleghany Highlands of northwestern
Virginia couple with remarkable habitat to
create an extraordinary outdoor recreational
opportunity. The area is home to the million
acre George Washington National Forest,
the Homestead Resort, Lake Moomaw, and
the renowned trout waters of the Jackson
River. Near the Jackson River tailwaters of
Gathright Dam are 600+ acres of privately
held Crown Grant property.
McKee Carson and Field Sport Concepts
was charged with master planning the
property and establishing the vision for a
low-density shing and conservation estate
community. Spending days on site and on
the river, our team sited approximately
twenty optimal home sites and countless
community gathering areas. Each home
site will benet from a complete cross
section of local ecology from the height
of a climax forest, through understory,
hedgerow, meadow, and stream. Community
amenities are considered in hierarchy a
multi-seasonal cabin/clubhouse, shelters,
natural riverside plots, and a series of trails
that meander along the Jackson, through
newly established warm season meadows
and orchards, and along the mountain ridge.

Mill Mountain Farm is located in the
mountain region of Southern Albemarle
County, Virginia. The owners wanted FSC
afliate McKee Carson to create a unique
home and garden on the 600 acre property
that accommodates a growing family while
acknowledging the landscape typology.
On a physiographic scale the landform at
Mill Mountain can be interpreted as one
gesture that of a bowl or basin with water
pouring from its sides.
The ecological communities at Mill
Mountain (forest, riparian edge, and
meadow) can be seen as separate but the
function of each is inherently connected
to the others and to the larger ecosystem
in which they are situated. The richness
of Mill Mountains ecology provides a
distinct, multi-layered vernacular that
inuences design decisions. Designing
in an ecologically-conscientious manner
that recognizes the landscape and the
architecture as a cohesive whole is our
charge and is essential to the success of Mill
Mountain as a place specic.

Panorama Farms is a true example of
farmland preservation. Comprising 1,038
acres, it is located along the South Fork
of the Rivanna River and adjacent to the
Rivanna Reservoir, the primary source of
public potable water for Charlottesville/
Albemarle County. Its owners, recognizing
the futility of small farm cattle production
at the time, elected to develop a small
portion of the property into low-density
residential use with the stipulation that
such development would protect the
reservoir through the use of low-impact
development strategies and conservation
easements. As a result, a cluster residential
plan far removed from the reservoir was
implemented leaving more than 800 acres
permanently dedicated to agriculture and
outdoor recreational activities. This was the
rst residential development of this type
in the County of Albemarle and was an
early precursor for the Rural Preservation
Development Ordinance.
Today, the undeveloped portion of the
farm serves as a cultural amenity for the
region. The farm and its picturesque rolling
terrain hosts numerous cross-country
invitationals and dual meets, bringing in
teams from all over the state. Income is
also derived from fee-based mountain bike
trails, seasonal dove hunting and, most
signicantly, a thriving composting business
that serves the Central Virginia region.
Inspired by the owners dedication to and
strong belief in conscientious planning
and rural land protection, our team
employed innovative solutions to create this
economically viable and environmentally
responsible land-use model in lieu of a
traditional by-right residential subdivision at
Panorama Farms.

OUR MISSION
To assist those who own or control rural landholdings in preserving, enhancing or
planning alternative uses for the properties in their charge. We actively advocate the
introduction of outdoor activities and recreational pursuits as a means of sustaining rural
traditions while promoting a land stewardship ethic and creating economic value.
OUR APPROACH
Involves a clear and comprehensive understanding of our clients motivations and
project goals and objectives. Once these have been dened and prioritized, the team
works cooperatively through a structured process to compile not only effective land-
use concepts, but nancial models, construction guidelines and management programs
tailored specically to the land and client. In many cases, FSC afliates provide both
construction assistance and on-going program management services.
OUR PHILOSOPHY
The preservation of rural lands is wholly reliant upon economic viability. Aligning the
clients interests with the natural resources and amenities of the property, we reveal
opportunities that are at once economically responsible and environmentally sensitive.
