For millennia, humans have been cultivating hemp. The miraculous cannabis plant is the source of multiple extracts and compounds that possess natural, wellness properties.
Among them is Cannabidiol, or CBD – the hemp-derived compound that holds the key to unlocking the body’s endocannabinoid system.
The High Falls Hemp story began back in 1981 when our co-founder Tricia moved to NYC. Tricia grew up on a farm in Ohio, so city life left her yearning for the great outdoors. She soon found a beautiful parcel of farmland in High Falls NY on the banks of the Roundout River. Over the years Tricia and her husband Rick further developed the property and began growing vegetables and enjoying the land. It has been their place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.
A car accident in NYC left both of them with chronic discomfort and they started searching for natural remedies. Tricia and Rick soon heard about and started using CBD, and were amazed at how much better they felt, without relying on medications.
When New York state offered farmers licenses to grow Hemp in 2017, they realized it was meant to be and planted their first hemp in 2018.
Rick and Tricia were passionate about farming and also about wine. They extensively traveled exploring the finest family vineyards from Napa to Bourdeaux. These vineyards were the inspiration behind the High Falls Hemp mission – to nurture the finest plants with organic farming practices to create the highest quality products.
How it all began.
Tricia and Rick’s dream of a hemp wellness revolution begins in High Falls, New York– two hours from the city. Today, Tricia manages the farming and Rick the marketing of their budding CBD business which boasts 13 acres of hemp farms in four locations.
High Falls is a magical place. The iconic waterfall at the heart of the town is the heartbeat, the lifeblood, of verdant valleys and vast, dense forests – a purity so palpable, it was ideal for creating the finest hemp-derived CBD products.
The very heartbeat of HIGH FALLS HEMP | NY is its iconic Hempery – the cabin turned state-of-the-art laboratory where the seeds germinate and blossom into hemp plants. The Hempery is where the magic happens, where the journey begins. Through our distinct “seed to soul” philosophy, the mission of HIGH FALLS HEMP | NY is to craft the purest CBD-infused products available anywhere.
The hemp wellness revolution is upon us.

High Falls, New York is a beautiful hamlet nestled in Ulster County, New York, within the Catskill region. The city takes its name from the nearby feature on the Rondout Creek, where the creek cuts through a large rock formation and goes over a large waterfall.
This was an attractive source of water power, and millers were drawn to it from colonial times. It’s location, at a key water crossing, inclusive of the John A. Roebling aqueduct, remained important for decades in the industrialization era. This is also a place where our nation’s natural element, cement was discovered!
Over time, High Falls was transformed from a small industrial, rural community town to a bustling city after the canal was expanded in 1850 to handle big barges transporting materials.
Given its location, it established itself as a haven for local farmers and businesses to flourish. We are proud to have established our farm in this sprawling valley that provides the best Mother Earth has to offer with seasons and plant-life to grow our esteemed products and deliver them to your door!
