“First ribbon-cutting for a farm in probably 100 years in the City of Pittsburgh,” quipped Mayor Bill Peduto at the future site of Hilltop Urban Farm, a 107-acre property in the city’s tiny St. Clair neighborhood in South Pittsburgh that includes 23 acres of farmland.

Upon completion, it will be the largest urban farm in the United States.

Located on the site of the former St. Clair Village public housing neighborhood, 67 acres of the property is undeveloped hillside. In addition to 23 acres of farmland, 12 acres will be used for green spaces and other future development. Another 14 acres will be retained by the URA for potential future housing.
