Frequently Asked Questions


I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Hilltop Urban Farm! When will you officially open?

We are proud that Hilltop Urban Farm is generating the attention of media and individuals alike! Throughout 2018, we are actively building the farm and seeding it for production. In 2019, our Farmers’ Market, Youth Farm, public education and tree planting opportunities will be available to the public. We will also begin accepting applications for our Farmer Incubation Program in 2019, with the first class of farmers slated to begin tilling the land in 2020.


Where is Hilltop Urban Farm located?

We are located at 700 Creswell Street in Pittsburgh, PA. View our map [Insert Link to Where to Find Us] for more information. However, because the farm is currently under development, the site is locked and secured unless an event is underway. We take these steps to protect the safety of our contractors, volunteers and the general public.
