Edg-Clif Farms was founded in 1926 by Andrew Stephen Knapp and his wife Hazel Quinn Knapp, when they purchased the stone lodge for a hunting retreat. The original cliff side stone lodge, was built in 1862. Since the Knapp purchase, the lodge has seen multiple expansions and restorations. 

In 1936, the Knapps founded the Hereford Cattle Ranch which became a world renowned show herd. During World War II, Knapp ran seven miles of electrical lines from Potosi to Edg-Clif, providing the first electrical power to that part of the county. During his development of the cattle business, the ranch was expanded to cover 3,000 acres. 

Andrew's son, Robert S. Knapp and wife Betty Graham Knapp, inherited the farm in 1960 and it continued to thrive as a cattle ranch. In 1986 the property was passed on to daughters Stephanie Knapp Littlefield and Cynthia Knapp Keesee. In 1994, they opened the land to a neighboring Bison Ranch.A 2,500 Vine Vineyard was planted in 2008 by current owners and operators Stephanie and Stephen Littlefield and Cyndy and Girard Keesee. Our winery opned in June of 2011.
