The story of Bryant's begins in the years following the American Civil War. A young Southern officer returning home to the Virginia Blue Ridge, inherited acreage and an overseer’s log cabin upon his father’s death. From these modest beginning he developed a prominent orchard farm called Edgewood.
The orchards and farm eventually passed to his granddaughter and her husband. They not only preserved the orchards throughout the Great Depression, but expanded the farm to include peaches, lumber and cattle.
In the late-1960s, Hurricane Camille swept through Nelson County Virginia, destroying a large portion of Edgewood farm. Again, a great-granddaughter and her husband saved the farm. They restored the house, replanted the acreage, and reestablished the orchards.
Today, through six generations, begins a new chapter for Edgewood farm through Bryant's Cider. Preserving a legacy – not just of the land – but of strength, commitment, perseverance and preservation. We are dedicated to sustainable agriculture and preserving the natural resources of Virginia.
