High Falls Farm is a multi-enterprise farm in the Hudson Valley of New York.

We grow beyond-organic apples, pears, chestnuts, hazelnuts, sheep, and mushrooms. We sell to local restaurants, retailers, and direct to consumers.

About the Farm

Located in the historic town of High Falls along the Rondout creek, we are the closest farm to the falls themselves.

We use Regenerative Agriculture principles and practices in the development and management of the farm.

Owners/Farmers: Dyami & Ethan Soloviev

Additional Farm Enterprises: Rebekah Mindel, Meadow Wilds; Katherine Chiu & Abe Young, Asian Vegetable CSA


We sell log-grown shiitake mushrooms through our Mushroom CSA, direct to local restaurants (The Spy, The Eggs Nest, Butterfields, Hash, Mountain Brauhaus and more), and at the High Falls Food Co-op and Cheese Louise.

We also offer you the opportunity to grow shiitake mushrooms at your own house by selling pre-inoculated ‘Holiday Gift Logs’ in November and December.

Most of our apples are sold direct to home cider makers and local restaurants. Apples and pears are also available in season at the High Falls Food Co-op and Cheese Louise.

To purchase apples, pears, or mushrooms, contact highfallsfarmny@gmail.com
