V & V is a unique resource management company, and the first of its kind in the Southeast. Capitalizing on years of expertise in various mountain trades and management fields, V & V provides partnership based services and consultations for those seeking a more integrated and responsible approach to their land needs. We strongly believe progressive resource management should work in harmony with both a landowner’s immediate goals and the long-term requirements of our fragile bioregion. Our mission is to mimic the efficiency and genius of our natural ecology, replacing wasteful and damaging technologies with practices that are simple, sustainable and economically viable. We specialize in restorative solutions, providing a nexus between Old World wisdom and emergent technology. In working with us, clients are presented an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the needs of their land. Whether a 1/2-acre lot, or a 500-acre farm, at V&V we accept the challenge of proving how satisfying and affordable sustainable land management practices can be. We believe in the time-honored business values of good communication, superior service and customer satisfaction.
While we have your attention it is worth taking a moment to discuss the purpose of this website.
