J&R Cahoon Logging, Inc. of Bellhaven, NC is a family-owned logging and wood chipping business that has been operating for three generations. J&R Cahoon Logging began when current owner, Joedy Cahoon’s grandfather started cutting timber for lumber and for the local paper mills in the area. As Joedy’s father Carlton became old enough, he took over the business from his father and similarly, Joedy started working with his father after finishing high school.
