Rennie Bridgman grew up on a family farm in Dinwiddie County near Fort Pickett and Blackstone, VA. The family grew tobacco, corn, grain and for a while operated a small dairy selling grade B milk. Rennie was exposed to all aspects of rural living including milking cows by hand. Although as an adult he never depended on farming for a livelihood, he has always enjoyed watching crops being planted, tended to and harvested.
Rennie graduated college in 1967 with a BS Degree in business administration and his first job was with a local bank. He then developed an interests in law enforcement and criminal justice resulting in a thirty year career as a Probation and Parole officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia.

He operates the Dinwiddie office under the name United Country-Windy Oak Realty, which is the name of his family farm.
Today Rennie lives on the family farm with his wife of 46 years and a daughter and son-in-law who built a house on the farm. They also have a son who lives in Colonial Heights, VA and they anticipate he will return to the farm in the near future. Rennie’s greatest enjoyment is spending time with his two grandsons, ages 12 & 17.
