Farm Tour Lowdown: Alemany Farm

Alemany Farmalemany
You may have driven by Alemany Farm hundreds of times without seeing it. Tucked beneath the roar of Highway 280 along a hillside sloping up to Bernal Heights, this four-acre spot is San Francisco’s largest farm. Manager Jason Mark, youth from the adjacent Alemany housing community, and a team of volunteers have created a beautiful food-producing haven on this site originally established by the now-defunct San Francisco League of Urban Gardeners. Alemany Farm not only generates fresh, affordable produce for the surrounding community, it also creates meaningful jobs for youth and opportunities for urban residents to engage with the natural environment.
