The small but mighty Hany’s Harvest team is more like a little family led by an adventure-loving Hany! We’re based in the town of Catskill, nestled in the Hudson Valley just a few miles from the Catskill Mountains, where our team balances our dedication to herbal wellness with a host of other pursuits, hobbies, and studies.

Hany ElDiwany

Founder

Hany founded Hany's Harvest in 2017, inspired by a recipe for Fire Cider and a passion for robust wellness and culinary adventure. Before that, he worked as a chemical engineer, taught math & science in underserved schools, and spent years seriously studying and playing Indian Classical music. When he's not busy running the business and creating new recipes, you can find him riding his bike, keeping bees and honing his archery and carpentry skills.
