Seeded atop the Gate A entrance of Boston’s beloved Fenway Park, Fenway Farms is a
7,000 sq. ft. rooftop farm designed to provide 4,000 lbs of organic produce for the ballpark each year.

 

FENWAY PARK REIMAGINED 
As part of an ongoing campaign by the Boston Red Sox to exemplify and promote healthy and responsible ways of living, Fenway Farms was planned with sustainability in mind on all levels. The site is equipped with an on-demand Weathermatic Smartlink drip irrigation system to conserve water while supporting the farm’s rotating array of vegetables and herbs.

Crops sown will be selected by EMC chefs to be used in salads and fresh side dishes prepared in the EMC Club kitchen, and may range from arugula, snap peas, and rosemary in the spring season to eggplant and potatoes come the summer months.
