Welcome to Wood Ridge Farm! We are located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in lovely Nelson County, Virginia.  
Our 300-acre family farm boasts lush fields, multiple ponds/lakes and beautiful views.
Wood Ridge Farm Brewery, houses our one of a kind tap room with wraparound decks to best exploit the remarkable panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and next year's barley dancing the field.  Our local craft beer is truly one of a kind as we utilize our own barley, wheat and rye. Our spring water has proven to be excellent for brewing.  We also are working on our own strain of yeast to round out our all farm brewery. 

Wood's Mill Malting, 
4000 square foot state-of-the-art facility can malt up to 2000 pounds per week.  We have the capacity to produce 6000 pounds per week of kilned base malts. We also have a large commercial roaster that we use to produce our own crystal, chocolate and other specialty malts.  
The Cabin at Wood Ridge Farm, nestled in a secluded hollow on the farm, is a wonderful retreat cabin where you can relax on our white sandy beach dotted with tropical plants (seasonally) while you fish in our 2-acre, deep, fresh water, spring fed, trout stocked lake! 

Located on the farm you will notice 2 grass runways.  These are maintained for Wood Ridge Air Field.

Wood Ridge Farm is also a fully functional farm!  We raise chickens and Black Angus Steer.  Our watermelons are known to be the best around.  We strive to maintain sustainable agriculture using the best farm practices.

Thank you for visiting our blog and we will see you soon!
