Our Wyndridge Team

WYNDRIDGE FARM SKULK

Owner & Key Management Team

It takes a great team to take a concept from a pencil drawing on a napkin and turn it into a business that employees more than 45 people … all in the span of two years. A good team needs great leadership to continually move the concept forward and grow the business to its full potential. Below is the leadership team of Wyndridge Farm:

Steve & Julie Groff, Owners

Wyndridge Farm: Steve and Julie Groff

Dr. and Mrs. Steven Groff are the husband and wife team behind Wyndridge Farm.  Julie, a registered nurse and mother of three adult children, supervises finance and beverage compliance in the growing organization.

Dr. Groff had been practicing Orthopedic Surgery since 1996 and has been integral in several large projects in the York area.  He was the president of KDV Orthopedics during the large merger that took place to form OSS, a vital healthcare entity in South central PA.  He served as chairman of the real estate committee, supervising the purchase and rezoning of thirty acres—which became the Powder Mill Road Site of OSS and houses the company’s bright future.

He was founding chairman of the Ambulatory Surgical Center at OSS and developed an innovative outpatient spinal surgery program, the first of its kind in the region.  This led to strong profitability for the Center.

Later, he would become President of OSS, serving for two terms and was later approved for an exceptional third term.  It was in that period, while maintaining a busy surgery practice, that he led the development of the OSS surgical hospital.  This would become the region’s top musculoskeletal healthcare provider.  He was the founding Chairman of the Board of managers of the hospital.  He oversaw the transition of the independent medical group into an alliance with the hospital, known as OSS Health System.

This is now a flourishing independent health system, known throughout the region for its outstanding service and facilities.

After suffering injuries in a bicycle accident in 2011, he began to look at business ventures utilizing the family’s seventy-seven acre farm.  This project took on greater significance, as his surgical practice was affected by residual symptoms from the accident.

Scott Topel, Cidermaster

Wyndridge Farm's Scott Topel Cider Master

Scott has been making hard cider for over 18 years.  Starting in upstate NY using all apples from local farms, he honed the craft on a small scale.  While attending UC Santa Cruz where he completed a degree in Music with high honors, Scott founded and ran a craft cidery in Felton, CA, which is still in operation today.

After college, Scott studied commercial hard cider production amidst hundreds of miles of orchards in Northwest Washington at the University of Washington’s agricultural extension center. Later while attending graduate school in Milwaukee at UWM, Scott further explored cider making with Aeppeltreow Winery in Burlington, WI.

After moving back east in 2012, Scott began working as a hard cider consultant for various breweries and wineries helping to launch several very successful ventures. With Wyndridge from the beginning, Scott is Head Cider Maker at Wyndridge Farm and manages all cider production from pressing to packaging.

With a focus on obtaining the best possible fruit from 100% PA farms, he’s looking to express the character of our local orchards with his hard cider while trying unconventional yeasts and fruit blends to create new flavor experiences.  Onsite at the farm Scott usually has around 10 cider side projects including things like honey ciders, mojito ciders, fruit ciders and various barrel aged ciders from wine, brandy, tequila, whiskey and bourbon barrels.  He’s looking forward to exploring new markets with Wyndridge and continuing to grow while staying true to a full juice cider, never fermented with concentrate.
