The Thornfield Farm Project

While most of our projects are Urban in nature, we believe to be no less critical the work we do in various rural communities throughout Southwest Virginia. With the Owners and Developers of Thornfield farm we helped to imagine and then implement a plan for the comprehensive redevelopment of 125 acres in rural Botetourt County outside Fincastle, VA. Our objective was to come up with an economically viable, long term plan for the transition of a working dairy farm into a stable residential community based on a shared commitment to environmental sustainability and conservation. We believe the stewardship of Virginia’s rural assets over and to the next generation presents landowners with both some of the greatest opportunities and the most difficult challenges associated with meaningful environmental change and conservation.
