The spectacular Riverpark farm, one of the largest urban farms in New York City, provides fresh-cut produce to the Riverpark restaurant for anyone to enjoy. With its unique garden, view from the East River, and ever-changing menus, this is a destination that that shouldn’t be missed.
Farmer Zach Pickens explains the selection process after he had caught sight of some golden peas amongst a sea of green. Pickens says “If we can isolate the golden pea trait, after a few generations we may end up with some golden peas.”
