At 17,000 square feet, the Farm at Pike & Rose is the largest rooftop farm in the Washington Metro area and Mid-Atlantic region. Its first crops were planted in March. Most produce grown travels no more than a few blocks from farm to table.
The company turned the space into a productive agricultural site growing greens, root vegetables, herbs, tomatoes, peppers and more. Produce grown at the Farm at Pike & Rose is distributed through a Farm Membership Program.
Up Top Acres first partnered with Federal Realty on a 7,000-square-foot rooftop farm at Bethesda Row, bringing fresh produce to Jaleo Bethesda and other local restaurants. After two successful growing seasons, the company expanded this sustainability initiative to Pike & Rose.
