Steve Groff

Chairman, Groff North America

Steve, the son of a fourth-generation farm family, was born and raised in Lancaster County.  After graduating Albright college and University of Virginia with his M.D., he completed residency training in orthopedic surgery at Penn State Hershey.  He had a twenty-year clinical practice in York County.  He was instrumental in the development of the area’s largest musculoskeletal health organization, OSS, along with its ambulatory surgical center and Hospital Health system.  Steve served as the president for three terms.  After a nearly tragic bicycle accident, he and his family focused on the development of Wyndridge Farm, a restaurant, wedding and corporate event venue, and beverage manufacturer in York County, PA.  Wyndridge has achieved a strong brand recognition in four years.

The US Farm Bill of 2018 legalized the ability for farmers to grow agricultural hemp.  Steve recognized this significant change and has assembled a management team and outside professionals to take advantage of this opportunity.
