THE HIGH FALLS STORY
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 get away 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.
